"Spread-eagle oratory"
-cited from North American Review November 1858.

'A compound of exaggeration, effrontery, bombast, and extravagance mixed with metaphors, platitudes, threats and irreverent appeals to the Almighty."

Miss Kitty is holding out for Matt. I don't think it's going to happen, though.
