Politics: Tired of Thinking?

Aren’t you tired of thinking?  Doesn’t it pain the old noggin to have to contemplate the economy, terrorism, international relations, crime, corruption, disease, starvation and exploitation, PLUS sports and weather?  All you need to do is to put US in Congress and in the White House.  We’ll do all the thinking for you!  Of course we care deeply about you!  Most of you.  53% of you.  Well, those of you that will vote for us.  To be honest, uh, those who contribute to our campaigns.  OK, OK, really and truly, those who make BIG contributions to our campaigns.  And if you’re suffering, if your life is falling apart, you can blame us!  No problem!  Hell, with all the power, wealth and attention we get, we can take a little criticism!  Anyway, we gotta be better than the jerks that are in office now…Unless we’re running for reelection.  Then it would be stupid to replace us with yahoos that will make everything worse!  Remember, your vote counts! You represent one in 207,643,594 eligible voters!
