  •  I look at them as salesmen (5+ / 0-)

    I've come to see both parties as sales divisions for Oligarchy, Inc.  They have different brands that appeal to different target audiences, along with well-worn sales pitches promising delights that never seem to get delivered.  One lot may fuck things up more than the other one, but neither one would dream of actually working for us.  They're more carnival barkers than representatives.

    The few principled folks help to maintain the brand, and keep the customers believing in it.  They represent what the target audience wants to believe it's buying, and I don't even know if most of them realize that that's their job.

    If you want to cut Social Security, you're not a real Democrat.
