Excellent snark as well!
MP, thank you for clarifying the recent UK election for us Yanks who couldn’t quite figure out what it was all about.
We’ll be happy to clarify for you what “Democrats” and “Republicans” are all about, once we figure it out ourselves.
Hey, I think I’ve seen this before and it said “American Politics” across the top.
Well, who do you think our lot copied, Our Trace? When I was a lad we had political parties with different policies. Now we just have politicians and the only difference is their names. Even their faces all look pretty much the same.
“Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac” Secretary of State Kissinger.
No one has ever proved him wrong or even raised a serious objection to that view. 😉
Choice is an illusion presented by those with power to those who have none.
I think American electoral politics was best described by David Sedaris in 2008 as like being on a plane to Miami, and the steward asks what you would like for supper. Would you like the chicken or the plate of shit with broken glass in it? And then you turn around and ask, “How is the chicken cooked?”
True, Doug. And, of course, some voters only want to know what colour the plate is.
Well, perhaps. But then I wonder if the U.S. and the U.K. would be in Iraq if the Democrats had won the 2000 U.S. presidential election.
“But then I wonder if the U.S. and the U.K. would be in Iraq if the Democrats had won the 2000 U.S. presidential election.”
That’s because the Supreme Court gave us the plate of shit with broken glass when we ordered the chicken in 2000.
well said, Counterlight
And yet the Democrats voted for you lot to go to war. They pretty much gave the moron carte blanche.
