As I see it here are two branches of politics. One is the politics of making laws and rules that wealthy people use. The other is the distract the masses branch.
Politicians operate in both areas, but obviously there are those who are better suited for one or the other. The artists of distraction often appear on talk shows like Meet The Press. Since it’s mostly blather we might think of it as Meet The Mess.
The important deals always go on behind the stages and not money know what’s going on until they feel it at street level. Not much any average Jill is gonna do about this but it’s worth knowing.
