They took a pile of dog shit,
And they mushed it in a mound,
Till it stood about two inches tall,
Nine inches wide, and round,
They let it sit a while,
Till it dried a little bit,
And it looked a bit like pastry
(Though it through and through was shit)
Then they covered it with frosting
So it seemed a proper cake—
If you hadn’t paid attention,
And you didn’t know it’s fake—
Then they took the pile of dog shit
And they put it on display
And they said “it looks delicious—
Won’t you try a bite today?”
Though the frosting looks delicious
I will never take a bite
I have seen the cake’s construction
And it simply isn’t right
They may tweak the presentation
(They will tweak and never quit)…
Dress it up the way you want to,
What you’re selling, though… is shit.
I’ve seen entirely too many ads and articles alerting me to the new strategies that might be tried in the upcoming GOP debate.
I do not care. And neither should you.
This is not closed-minded. This is open-eyed. If you know someone for decades, know them to be of a particular character, and then see them act in a different way for a day or two, you would be a fool to “be open-minded” and assume they have changed. Is it possible? Certainly. Is it possible they are lying? Or pandering? Or reading the weathervane? All are possible. Thing is, being open-minded means following the evidence. And there is plenty of evidence available already.
And yes, the same holds true for anyone, in any party. I’ve just heard too much about repositioning within the GOP… and I cannot imagine what *anyone* could say at this point to make up for what they have said up to this point.
