POLITICIANS . ... are like . TWAIN

Politicians are striking out.  (baseball people)
Disenchantment everywhere. lo.      ..............    ** I found Mark Twain. "
..............

POLITICIANS  : ARE LIKE DIAPERS  .  .. THEY NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN   AND FOR THE SAME REASON .

>MARK TWAIN  did not hold politicians in high esteem . He was particularly spiteful toward the legislative  branch  in novels like 'The Gilded age 1873  and short stories like 'Cannibalism in cars' 1868.
' There is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress ,' he wrote in Puddn'head Wilson' 1894.
In " What is man ' 1906 he speculated that ' Fleas can be taught nearly everything a Congressman can'.
Given the viciousness of his real attacks on elected officials, spanning across his whole career, it is probably no surprise  that the Corpus /body of Twain Apocrypha/imaginary ? ..includes many pot shots at politicians. <

*  got that right  TWAIN.    ..... playing out    in  today's world.
btw have not read  those books'
