A professional politician is a professionally dishonorable man(or woman). In order to get anywhere near high office he has to make so many compromises and submit too so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker. ~ H. L. Mencken

Wake of Presentation

He asked those in the group desiring additional food coupons to raise their right hands.

Naturally, the response was automatic.

But when the newsreel was distributed by the Nazis, it was entitled “French Citizens Welcome Us to Paris with Upraised Hands in the Nazi Salute”.

Thus can we be misled by the wiles of propaganda.
