U S Politics…..Election 2014 - 'Tis All In The Story..Of Senator Mary Landrieu

Since when does truth…
....Become uncouth
..Chaos…again…along….for the ride…
Hypocrisy..the evening's notorious landslide
Throwing them out….is throwing them in
...Ideological treadmill...winning again
No grease for the public's…perpetual screw
‘Tis all in the story..of Senator Mary Landrieu

Author's Note:
Rarely have the mechanics of American Politics been so vividly exposed, and its disingenuous behavior viewed in such elementary, yet comprehensive fashion, as the Republicans' strident condemnation of Landrieu's remarks, and the Democrats' conspiratorial silence on the matter. The Senator, candidly speaking regarding factual matters of American History suddenly found herself politically pilloried for simple statements of truth. Such criticism suggests that 'truth' has no political place, and speaks volumes to the collective lack of integrity, that medium of critical importance so necessary during the execution of governing. We witness a prime indicator that politics as practiced by both political entities overall is less about honesty, and more about deception, distortions and outright fabrications. It suggests the Senator's words may have been the 'only' truth politically expressed during the entire campaign.

('To be very, very honest with you, the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It's not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It's more of a conservative place, so we've had to work a little bit harder on that.'
~Senator Mary Landrieu - October 30,2014)
