Same As It Ever Was

Nobody asked but …

I don’t know about where you live, readers, but here is how we do it in Kentucky. No matter how many early candidates for high office, the big law firms, which run the state, split up their rainmakers among all the candidates. Every big law firm buys part of every candidate. They buy the ear of each — regardless of party, regardless of chances for election. So when the election finally takes place, every law firm has an automatic entry in the appointment book of the high official. Every non-lawyer seeker of official favors just picks a lawyer from a big law firm. Of course, this keeps small favor seekers out. Now, you may think it is different where you live, but what are the odds of that? The fact is that it makes no difference who the leader is, you are being led.
