Mad Dogs and Politicians—But I Repeat Myself
By Robert Higgs • Wednesday December 15, 2010 7:18 PM PST •
Encountering a mad dog one day, the cat
inquired of this menace: Republican or Democrat?
The dog’s mouth foamed freely with cash and honey,
and he said: “Who cares? It’s all about the money.”
He then led the cat down a garden path,
all smiles and promises, till he turned in his wrath.
He attacked like the crazed beast he certainly was
and sent the cat flying in a cloud of fuzz.
So, beware politicians you might meet on your walk;
they’ll promise you anything, but it’s just empty talk.
Don’t give them a chance to latch onto what you’ve got,
for the only good mad dog’s the one that’s been shot.
