*** begin quote ***
If you read the book by Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince, there’s one central theme that comes out and every politician, power broker and religionist since has practiced. Never apologize. They will obfuscate, misdirect, counter accuse, but never apologize. Sad really. Politics is the game of literalizing metaphor and hanging people by twisting intent of their words.
*** end quote ***
It’s really sad and frustrating.
Well, it will soon be over.
