Politics is a strange business in which the most cynical of operatives ply their trade behind the scenes. I know this in part from observation and reading, but I also know this because some of them are friends of mine. They are funny, beguiling people, with a part of their conscience anesthetized, which enables them to do deeply dark things in the name of winning for their side.
This is a similar manifestation to that found in the the trade of lawyers.
I have asked these folks how they can do these things. How do you permit yourself to look in the mirror at your own face when you have just helped destroy something dear for all time in the name of your client?
With that question unanswered, I send you to your reading assignment for today, which illustrates this type of operative in action. I figure that Dick Morris has no problem looking himself in the mirror because at this late stage in his career as a Right Wing political operative, he no longer has a reflection.
And here's some other stuff I found amusing...Heck, It's Friday, right?
All you Random women better watch out!
And from our International Relations Department here in Roane County:
Who won the coin flip?
Yi So-yeon gets to ride on a rocket to the International Space Station while Yoon-Jin Kang gets to see Fort Southwest Point in Kingston.
Hooo-eeee! Wonder why Yoon-Jin Kang is waving that axe? Did they tell her about the big Indian treaty swindle that put Kingston on the map?
