Political campaigns are nauseous. (Note: that word does not mean “nauseated,” although today’s illiterates universally use it so.) A politician’s plea consists of “I’ll give you stuff you want, but I’ll make some other dumb ______ pay for it.” Can I get a witness?

One of the worst examples is the Billary/Osama promise of universal health care. I practically never go to a doctor, but auto repair eats me alive. Why don’t they offer universal car care? Does that sound like a stupid idea?
