"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Politics is increasingly becoming people shouting at each other in a cartoon world.
They're not shouting at each other, they're shouting among themselves. It's like a war dance, only there's never an actual war. Someday, that's going to change.
Shouting at each other is still preferred to shooting at each other.Think Burr vs. Hamilton, who disagreed, vigorously.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burr%E2%80%93Hamilton_duel
Shouting at each other implies the likelihood that the other will listen.We're shouting past each other anymore; at least when a dog barks, you know there are fangs and claws backing his argument up.gvi
Nawww. It's more like this.
Ed,Gosh, I never heard of Burr and Hamilton. Tell me more!
You mean sincelike the Goldwater Kennedy dust up, er election?!!?? Now that was nasty.
I quit reading Dilbert years ago because it began to predict management initiatives at my company a bit too accurately.The same goes for political cartoon figures: when your audience wants a cartoon fight, give it to 'em.Why act smart when acting really, really stupid is both so much easier and more beneficial?
Unfortunately, the cartoon effects are all to real.
