Moving on to Politics...

 

If you are feeling confounded, confused, or otherwise bemused by the current crop of politicians participating in the Primaries, but don't know how to put it into words, take heart. The remarkably prescient, politically astute George Bernard Shaw has already said what you've been trying to say.


DONALD J. TRUMP:
"In trade, military and everything else, it will be America first! This will quickly lead to our ultimate goal: MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW:
"Fascism is nothing but State-financed private enterprise.
"

DONALD J. TRUMP:
"The economy is bad and getting worse....Nobody can beat me on the economy (and jobs).  MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW:
"If I wanted to become a popular statesman, I should stand on a platform, I should make a collection of the grossest platitudes I know, things that no person could possibly have avoided thinking for themselves, and I should repeat those with an air of conviction.  I should deliver every one of them as an ultimatum; and at the end of a very short time I would have the crowd madly cheering on that account."


WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN JOSH EARNEST on the Republican response to President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court:
"It's clear what Republicans are planning to do. They are planning to tear down the president's nominee without regard to who that person is."

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW in "On the Rocks":
"All this country, or any country, has to stand between it and blue hell are the consciences of them who are governing it."

DONALD J. TRUMP:
"The polls are now showing that I am the best to win the GENERAL ELECTION.  States that are never in play for Repubs will be won by me.  Great!"

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW:
"He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career."

DONALD J. TRUMP:
"Worthless NY Daily News, which dopey Mort Zuckerman is desperately trying to sell, has no buyer!"

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW:
"Mankind, being for the most part incapable of politics, accepts vituperation as an easy and congenial substitute."

TED CRUZ:
"I have been proud to fight and stand for religious liberty, to stand against Planned Parenthood, to defend life for my entire career."

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW:
"I am of course quite aware of the arguments in favor of legalizing abortion; but...it is not my subject; and it is not a man's subject anyhow: the women must handle it, as it is they who claim the right, or repudiate it."


REP. STEVE KING AT A TED CRUZ RALLY:
"Do your duty for God and country and nominate Ted Cruz for President"

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW in "On the Rocks":
'Let 'em have a voice.  Let 'em have a choice ... but let it be a voice to squeal with when they're hurt, and not to pretend they know more than God Almighty does. Give 'em a choice between qualified men: there's always more than one pebble on the beach; but let them be qualified men and not windbags and movie stars and soldiers and rich swankers and lawyers on the make."

Stay tuned for more wit and wisdom as the Political Season grinds on!
