Bolshevik George

Traveling by Train Takes Will

Flip-flops on many feet
~ Apparently the siren of train travel is more bewitching than anyone thought.

I know the half-life of political memory* is getting ever-shorter. But surely more people remember how George Bush savaged John Kerry in the 2004 campaign as a "flip-flopper" on the Iraq war? Compare that to what has been said about Libya and supporting the President in a time of war? Or how the Republicans in the US House love hate love the budget reconciliation process? Don't even get me going again on climate change.

The world would be a much better place if hypocrisy were a fatal disease.

*The time in which half the population utterly forgets a political event, or, alternatively, the time it takes for the population as a whole to turn into half-wits about it.
