5 stars for accuracy. Once a politician crosses the bridge from honesty to...whatever it is they do...we should burn it behind them.

    And if there is no bridge, he'll spend a billion taxpayers dollars to build one. Or should I say a billion taxpayer federal reserve notes.

    Unfair! Politicians are no more fickle or doublecrossing than are the constitutients or public opinion that they represent.
     -- Waffler, Smith

    Obama, GWB, Clinton .. you name it, they lie, lie, lie -- once they are in office, there is absolutely NOTHING we can do. That's democracy for you. Nothing but thieves and liars to choose from.

    There is a reason politicians tend to be sociopaths. The lack of conscience is a particular advantage to a professional liar.

    I think the bridges should be burned before they get to a point where they can doublecross that bridge. Better yet, if a way could be found to burn the bridge while he's still on it....
