Politically Speaking

Politicians speak a great deal, especially to the press, and they say as little as they can possibly get away with while doing so. The ability to spew or drool an incessant stream of bullshit is a core job skill for the average politician and the one most required in order to keep their jobs.

Politician Speaking - Bullshit Runneth Forth
From The Politician’s Mouth To The Press’ Ears

When comes right down to it, in the absence of statesmen, the only benefit that politicians provide to the people is a source of fertilizer and, even then, they spew it so profligately and indiscriminately that they poison far more than they stimulate.

    As a people we get what we deserve. We don’t get Statesmen because if we had them we wouldn’t vote for them. Politicians are a product. If we demanded a better product we would have it. All kinds of people run for office. Most Americans do not vote in off year elections. Even in the big elections a lot don’t vote.

    Look at the British. As soon as WW11 was over they threw out Churchill and put in a Keynesian, who created the modern British welfare state. We did not have a Churchill but we sure put in a Keynesian.

    That’s true, Alan – though I think of most politicians as by-products rather than products.
