Al Franken, America’s Politician Poet ,has penned the politician’s great political paean to self-serving enlightenment:
How do I love me – let me count the ways:
I love me to the depth my soul can reach
When dishing out my non-denial denial
I love me to the breath my soul can reach
When dishing out my non-apology apology
I love me to the height my soul can reach
When dishing out my non-responsibility responsibility
I love me even more when I get away
With my non-admission admission !
My mission: to get away with The Politician’s Way of Being: non-humble humble; non-contrite contrite.
And all the while: saving face; and preserving my honor.
