More of the Same

I just wanted to say that it seems as if one of my friends is at it again, like so many other people stuck in our current political paradigm.  This was one of their twitters.
I will not be watching the Chicago Machine politician tonight. Although, Halloween is coming, and one has to admire a great costume.
I don't know where to start.  I imagine this is how IOZ feels about most everything he comes across.  At this point in life, that is to say, outside the 1900s Plunkitt of Tammany Hall days, I would surmise that most every politician is a machine politician.  I'm not sure what my friend thinks they are proving.  The sky is blue?  You don't say!

Calling what Obama does a costume as well is more of the same.  To think Obama is different, or that any politician is different is absurd.  What does my friend, or anyone for that matter, think they are saving?  Because I'll be honest, I don't know.

Ultimately, I get a kick out of exploiting cognitive dissonance, or the utter lack of wherewithal that most people posses when it comes to politics.  That's why I comment on it.  It's like the joy of an adult watching a toddler figure out something – anything.  Why my friend comments on it?  I don't know, but like Will said before, it seems like he's just whining at this point.
