Politicians have ambitions to fulfill their sacred mission, to take Truman's heat in the kitchen. But what really goes on after they're officially on the government dole.

Whether wed or single, thin or fat, a Dem or One of Them, you need a place to hang your hat while you go to bat in a boudoir bed where deals are made and plans are laid for a future spot in the Big Parade.

Some earn their fare on the D. C. Gravy Train by brash and/or brain, by suspect connections and/or rigged elections, by doing this and getting that and knowing where the fat is at, by scratching backs and backing tax to the max on the poor and middle class.

Some make the laws they break using loopholes they included and ignored the safeguards they alluded to but cleverly excluded when the final draft was crafted. There are many ways taxpayers are shafted and legislation designed with criminal intent in mind becomes the symbol of democracy in the Hallowed Halls of Hypocrisy.
