When it comes to politics, I think most politicians are shit bags. My interest in politics is limited to what affects me and how. Just as for women, the most important day in their life is marriage, for politicians, election day is their most important. They are both so great, caring and warm to convince you to marry/elect them.
In both cases, after the special day, it is all downhill from there.
After marriage/election, the wife/politician will proceed to get fat/break promises and screw you over (divorce/laws against your interests).
