It's That Time Again


Blog Posted:10/29/2010 7:52:00 AM

Guess who is lower than whale doo?

A car salesman, come on, guess who.

Your car insurance company?...

Nope! God knows there are many.

How about a trial attorney?

those sots with exorbitant fees.

Nope! Damn close but no cigar.

Can’t guess who it might be so far?

Here’s a clue: they’re not that bright

and are nothing but parasites;

Prevarication is their tool

and think they have most of us fooled.

Give up? It’s a politician.

Brace yourselves for their lies again.

Honest politician is an oxymoron. Now instead of coming up with solutions, they spend millions pointing fingers at their opponent. I wonder if you put preparation H in the drinking water in Washington, would they all disappear. Vince
