How difficult is it not to hire four thousand dollar prostitutes?

I know a lot of people who manage to make it through their daily lives without even hiring a two thousand dollar prostitute.

More to the point — as dday at Hullaballoo says:

This is an object lesson into why you should not invest yourself so heavily into politicians.

Not to suggest that Hillary or Barack have been sneaking off to brothels, but a lot of people really want to believe that one or the other of them walks on water. Every time one of them is mentioned in a less than favorable light on this blog or in the cartoon, I inevitably receive a flood of angry email from supporters castigating me for my apparent support for the other candidate, whose irredeemable mendacity should surely be obvious to anyone with a few functioning brain cells.

Remember what Kurt Vonnegut said:

There is a tragic flaw in our precious Constitution, and I don’t know what can be done … This is it: Only nut cases want to be president.
