Pendejo Politico

“Democracy is when the indignant, & not
the men of property, are the rulers.”
--Aristotle.

Them: Pick your battles, old son--that is wisdom.
Me: How does one breathe air that is rife with industrial toxins?
Them: Just run immediately to Amazon, they carry gas masks.
Me: Do you make a practice out of subterfuge? 
Them: We see that your words are your weapons, pernicious poet!
Me: An observance so deep that I can applaud it.
Them: You consistently put forth a liberal point of view.
Me: You fail at presenting bull shit as truth!
Them: We really lack the energy necessary to deal with you.
Me: So binge on Snickers--food for endurance.
Them: We warn you that you are treading a dangerous path!
Me: Why don’t your ever try to walk the damn walk?

Ask politicians
honest questions & prepare
for bull shit showers.

Another painful truth. How many of us ever manage to walk the walk, eh?

The snickers line made me chuckle - you have to wonder how politicians learn how not to answer questions...i suppose it's an art form in itself...imagine living with them..shudder!
