There's No Politics Like TO Politics

Professional political operatives tell us that the public is somnambulent and that politics, to get any attention at all, must be fun, splashy, titillating.   They will also tell us that politics is a bloodsport and that you have to loathe and trash-talk your opponents as part of the quest to secure victory.

Remind you of anyone?  Personally, I think the WWF makes a terrible role model for politics, but that's just me.  Smarter people clearly get paid a lot more to say otherwise.

Or spin otherwise.  Or twist.  You get the point.
