Politics is the gentle art...

"Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other."

Oscar Ameringer

Well, on this Midterm Election Day 2010, that pretty well sums things up, doesn't it? Unless you prefer to add a famous quote from Henry Brook Adams for a fuller portrait of the rabid animal:

"Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds."
