Why me? I just strip away the fluff and relay the obvious in single syllable words when possible. Eh, maybe it's my disinterest in the outcome that puts everybody off. Without having a dog in this race, all I can do is call the play by play as it is. You could say I'm *losing my opinion*, and get my jollies from watching the dysfunctional.

Unfortunately, isn't this laziness vs. strongman similar to the ignorance vs. evil-genius dichotomy pushed forth under Bush II by his opponents?

Yes, role reversal has been key throughout. Damn near word for word from both sides. Literally the "mirror gag". Will the poles flip again in 2016? Eh, doesn't matter. As long as it's one or the other, it's just the same old same old.

Now that's a good one. More proof that you still adore him as your political deity to measure all others against. He was asleep at the wheel from the very beginning, and the second term was "president Bush" (or Nancy ("mommy") as mass media would have you believe). The people around him did all the work, and like all the others before and since he is a wooden dummy, the same one they've been using for 50 years, a little paint and a new suit and wig, and voila!

You should give Ted Turner more credit for bringing down the Wall. It was satellite TV, not satellite "defense" that did it. The Russians lost the propaganda war when they couldn't stop the Charmin toilet paper commercials from being broadcast into the country.

And you really should count the vacation days he took before comparing him to his twin there...

Nope, obviously your tribalism still stands out as much as it always has. Pure status quo all the way.

You're right about needing a good laugh, thanks. A day late, but what the hell. Every day is Tuesday here...

Why are you trying to regress back to seventh grade social studies? No, the real world isn't a House of Cards. It's a plain old regular chimp saying, *Pick the fleas off my back, and you can have my girl for the night*.

Yes, some people actually enter public service for noble reasons, and if they want to maintain that "nobility", they will get nowhere, and will lose the next election if they raise a fuss. If they want to get on some committee with real power and influence, and stay in office, and fix those potholes, then all bets are off. They're going make deals, or it all shuts down. They are animals, in not so cheap suits.

I won't call any of this "crooked" per se, because it is perfectly natural behavior. People will do whatever they can get away with. The veneer of civility only holds up while there's something to eat and something to fuck. Let's not read anything into it that's not there, and definitely let's not pretend there's any "nobility" in the system.

Why not? It's very same thing the government practices.. I sincerely hope i don't have to spell it out. It's how your sell shit. You lie, and hope the suckers will buy it, if not, then create a new lie. This is the history of man and nature.

I don't see the big deal. If people buy what you're sellin' , then more power to ya. Everybody always attacks the wrong guy in these things.
