Oh come on - gimme' a break. Isn't politics all about personality. Since when did you actually believe that you were really voting for agenda change. All that really differentiates a politician from a thief is the method of extracting money from your wallet.
Ambrose Bierce wrote : "A politician is an eel in the fundamental mud upon which the superstructure of organised society is reared. When we (sic) wriggles he mistakes the agitation of his tail for the trembling of the edifice. As compared with the statesman, he suffers the disadvantage of being alive."
But then again; seeing as it's so hard to differentiate between different shades of illusion (ie: crap) maybe it really is now only about who really looks the best. And why not - wouldn't you rather get f....d over by someone who looks really good!
By the way - I have this great pic (widely circulated via email) of Sarah Palin taking it in the way of 'An American tradition since 1776'. - ( use that as a campaign poster and watch her popularity rise) !
*Send me your address if you really wanna see how a politician should be treated and I'll send you the pic.
