ROMNEY, W.V., Oct. 16, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Background: Matt Labash, a senior writer for The Weekly Standard, recently spent a full week with Randall Terry, his family, and his cohorts, at his West Virginia base.
Labash, renown for his incisive wit, even-handedness, and masterful pen, has now provided the public with an 8,500 word tour into the life of the pro-life leader, Randall Terry.

As for the intentions of Terry and his team who are running for US House, Terry and Labash do not see eye-to-eye; while Labash maintains that the candidates are not running to win, Terry firmly disagrees.
While Labash offers scenes and conversations which dismantle decades-long caricatures of the legendary pro-life leader...his article is replete with several less-than-flattering remarks and anecdotes:
Terry, I find, is often funny like Michael Scott, the character played by Steve Carell on The Office. When Scott, the befuddled boss at a paper-manufacturing company who wants to be loved by his subordinates, performs a Chris Rock routine in the office replete with n-words, he can't understand why everyone is horrified: "How come Chris Rock can do a routine and everybody finds it hilarious and groundbreaking, and I go do the exact same routine, same comedic timing, and people file a complaint to corporate?" Similarly, sometimes Terry is funny because he's trying to be. And sometimes he's funny because he's not.
Labash describes a campaign ad shoot with team member, David Lewis:
In front of the camera is the aforementioned David Lewis, who, now that he's done tormenting John Boehner in his orange shirt, is running on Terry's slate as an independent candidate for Congress in Kentucky (for the purpose of broadcasting into Ohio). Lewis commands us to get out of his sightline, saying with mock fury, "I am a professional freaking actor!"
He's not. Though he tells us that he did play the lead in Aladdin, his third-grade musical. He still remembers the songs. Lewis isn't the natural performer Terry is.
When describing the scene of Terry's intense "Nightmare ad' shoot, Labash continues:
Terry has selected Madeline's pajama tank-top to get just the right contrast and tasteful level of cheesecake. Madeline is an attractive woman, and Terry thinks it's a force multiplier to let her look a "little saucy."
"But not too much sauce," cautions Ryan.
"Put the blanket down just a whisker," Terry says. "I want to get her breasts in a couple of these shots . . . bosoms is the old English word. I apologize, ma'am." "Personalities is what my grandmother used to call them," says Madeline, forgivingly.
