But where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky; they don't pass through a membrane from a separate reality. They come from American homes, American families, American schools, American churches, and American businesses. And they're elected by American voters.

->Think about everything you hear about Washington in the news: The disingenuous, corrupt, racist white jerkoffs bankrupting the country. The gutless fucks who say that there's 'no simple solution' to people with AR-15s shooting up public places... but legislate [[HeteronormativeCrusader what gay people can order at Chipotle]]. The defense lobbyists and 'think tank' fucks who never grew out of [[GeneralFailure playing with toy soldiers]], who go home at the end of each day to their house in Reston and jack off thinking about [[WhiteMansBurden dropping bombs on brown people.]]\\\
