The warping of the American political system surely stands as the crowning achievement of the august Assembly, for not only has it managed to render voter apathy as the normal mode of operation of the voting public, it has also precluded the induction of any qualified candidates into the upper echelons of the process.
Consider- the vast quantities of capital needed to mount a successful campaign necessitate the candidate's prostitution of themselves to procure the required funds. Like the corner call girl, the seeker of public office must pander to the fantasies of the constituents - blowing the horn of security through strength, or spreading wide the orifice of governmental giving; slathered in warpaint or rouged in charity; clad in butch warrior's armor or demurely adorned in the flowing skirts of compassion. The whore of identity stand ready to spread wide their selves for all comers: so longs as payment remains predictable, and doesn't frighten off the other clientèle.
