Politicians

Senator Joe Manchin (Dom-WV). Photos taken three weeks apart. It never ceases to amaze me that there are people pathetically gullible enough to believe politicians really care about them.

  2. Psalm 146 says, “Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, ….” (NIV) Politicians certainly fall into the do not trust category. All of ’em.

  6. What’s the difference between a prostitute and a politician?

    Prostitutes actually give you what you pay them for.

  7. @6 So true.

    Besides, a prostitute won’t put a gun pointed at your head to keep you paying for future non-performances.

  8. Pols not strong on principle, are they?

    Seems like only yesterday, conservatives had an irrational fear of Russia, law enforcement wasn’t to be trusted, the surveillance state was evil, and America’s poor needed the Democrat party to survive.

  12. Most politicians remind me of the mayor from The Nightmare Before Christmas, two-faced and not wanting to make any real decisions.

    “Jack, please, I’m only an elected official here, I can’t make decisions by myself!”

  13. It seems to me that he is showing respect to both sides of the discussion. He is trying to represent ALL of his constituents. He is being courteous and we need more of that, not less.

  14. Bad for your feet.

    I just want a raise.”

  17. There must be some sort of bipartisanship virus outbreak out there currently affecting the Domcrats in the strangest ways —

  20. A story:

    Many years ago, I wrote a letter to my then-junior senator from Taxachusetts, J Forbes Kerry. A couple of weeks later, his office sent a letter to thank me for mine, expressing his support for one side of the argument.

    A couple of weeks after that, I received *another* letter from his office, expressing support for the OTHER side of the issue.

  22. Some people call them congress critters for a reason.

  23. In business, the custom is for folks to choose their leaders on past achievements.

    In politics, the custom seems to be choosing the leaders on promises.

    Me thinks H. L. Mencken was on to something.

  24. Half-OT —

    Doug meets Bill at the bar for their usual after work drink.

    Bill looked depressed.

    Doug: “What’s wrong pal?”

    “Well, I finally succeeded in talking my girlfriend into a threesome.”

    “Wow, lucky you! But why the long face?”

    “Yeah, well, when that entered the 4th hour of hot & heavy action, it dawned on me that I should have specified I wanted to be one of the three.”
