A chicken in every pot, a martini in every glass

I made the mistake of doing cardio today during the Sunday-morning talk shows, for which I was rewarded with a mind-numbing barrage of political advertisements, including this one from Maryland Congressman C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger, which features testimonials seemingly straight out of a John Waters movie.

All of this political static filling the airwaves made me think that maybe the Founding Fathers had it right — best to buy votes with booze.

Though, come to think of it, liquor got me through many an Election Night as a political reporter.
