Political Tweets

"Politics is the art of the possible"
-Otto Von Bismark

This being the case, shouldn't those who would practise the art of the possible first find out what *is* possible?

"Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable."
- John Kenneth Galbraith

(or, in the current Australian situation: a choice between the unacceptable and the unthinkable)

"Cynicism is obedience"
"Optimism is a political act"
- Alex Steffen

Pessimism is the lot of the flock. The cynical sheepdogs will round you up in due course.

"Pig's arse they will!"
- Moi
