Reader comments about this quote:
Pretty funny without further context - lots of analogies can be written - hind sight.

    In this day of the professional politician, a reflective of reality observation.

    When applied to the historical American Ideal of the citizen-statesman, a less than apposite observation.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Politics is for people who have a passion for changing OTHERS' lives but have no intention of living like that. Take a Maxine Waters or Nancy Pelosi who push for legislation for their districts that they would NEVER live in. Most love living the high life, all expenses paid schmoozing donors, influence peddling, exempting themselves from their own laws.

    Politics is for people with a lust for power and a passion for keeping it.
     -- E Archer, NYC
