Dreamers dream of philosopher-kings

Or a knight who will slay all their dragons

While the dark side dabbles in dullards and dolts

And the paranoid circle the wagons

The shining knight failed to live up to the hype

And wandered too close to the middle

So dreamers decry that he didn’t even try

That Rome burned, while he played the fiddle

Meanwhile, the dark side devolves to the depths

Fills the air with their ignorant prattle

Waving the false-flag of free-marketeers

They follow like fools into battle

Dreamers decide they will sit this one out

And wait for their sinless messiah

While savages pillage the village and shout

Heed not this false Jeremiah

Very good political analysis and you actually made it rhyme

Perfect doesn’t define good as good.  Perfect defines good as evil.

Kosh   Thanks for the kind words – now don't go and get all philosophical on me with that inversity.

Maui  V is for a lot of things vaginia, virgin, venereal, vapid, values, vacillate, vacation, vaccination – I think I better stop now

And Five. 

I'm not being philosophical, I'm being literal. There is a bipolar (nothing to do with the psychological disorder) conception of the world, perfect and evil, bipolar like magnetic positive and negative as opposed to good being on a continuum. What do you think the idea that lesser evil is a null concept means? Or were you not here for those arguments?

T- since you mention vagina, a word I never tire of, it reminds me of an old friend who referred to his manhood as "Little Voltaire" ...

Kosh- given that Hillary, a far from perfect candidate or even individual with a checkered past, though her work providing AIDS Vaccines to millions ought to be factored, vs. what we see in the news today, and what, lets not kid ourselves, what we knew all along about the Confederate Yankee Traitor in the Oval Office now, how is lesser null? Is this Philosophy or Math?
