Think of a campaigning politician like a bad boyfriend. He’s cheated on, lied to and hit the girl and when she finally gets him the Hell out he comes back with some slightly new rap, telling her what she thinks she wants to hear and he’s back. And after a little time has passed she starts to get a glimpse that it’s the same bastard that made her life Hell before.
Next time you hear a democrat talking about “hope and change” or a republican talking about “lowering taxes,” “taking us back to the days of Pres. Reagan,” or “small government,” remember, there’s nothing new. It’s just the same ravenous, psycho son-of-a-bitch back again.
