Nasty Politics

Post by Mr Lisle » Tue Oct 31, 2017 4:10 pm

Junior Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona recently stood before his peers and announced he was leaving the Senate at the end of his term due to the nature of President Trump. Nuff said about that part.
Flake basically said it is beneath his dignity to be addressed and bullied in the manner of President Trump. Many agree. Many feel the business man Trump is simply kicking congress' do nothing butts....business style.
Anyway, if you want to read a good book find "Mudslingers: The 25 Dirtiest Political Campaigns of All Time". Written by Professor of Political Science Kerwin Swint of Kennesaw State University.
It starts very early with the battle between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The guy Jefferson hired to develop "fake news" about Adams went to jail. The whole thing eventually back-fires on Jefferson.
As Billy Joel said.."We didn't light the fire..."

Yeah, really sorry you’re all bent out of shape about Flake. Get over it and grow a pair yourself.
