An old man gave me the most succinct explanation of a politician the other day...
"Son, a politician can only do three things. He can take your money. He can spend your money. And he can tell you how to behave with the rules and reg'lations he makes".
"Most people would be pretty durned careful with this if it was to him only. Likely to choose someone not very interested in doing any of the three! Never could figger out why that same concern didn't come when votin'".
Being an old man, he didn't say "He or she" like you and I might, being all politically correct and all, or, actually recognizing that women are making huge inroads in the body politic today.
With age comes wisdom, I guess. Brilliant.
