Morton's Fork

Siting on the sofa
On a Sunday afternoon;
Goin' to the candidates' debate
Laugh about it, shout about it,
When you've got to choose;
Either way you look at it, you lose


-- Simon and Garfunkel, "Mrs. Robinson" (1968)

When the practice of politics becomes little more than deciding the color of posters advertising candidates, both of whose actual policies benefit a ruling elite, the question in America is not, How did we come to this?, but "Whaddaya talkin' about? Ahhh, go live in France, ya cheese monkey."

Right.
