Change, Schmange!

Bill Clinton redefined "sexual relations," as in "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky," and now our President-elect is redefining "change we can believe in."

"H" is defending the "change" promise he has broken even before he has been inaugurated, by claiming that it would be foolish to not have Washington insiders on the team with the economic and security challenges facing us. Silly us (at least the 63 million of us who voted for him), thinking that he was any different than all the rest. I thought the reason we were supposed to vote for him instead of Clinton or McCain was that he would bring in a whole new crew to Washington--BECAUSE the old crew was the one that had made a mess of things over the past generation.

This should come as no surprise--politicians, ALL politicians, tell us what they think will get them elected, and then do whatever they please with the power we hand them, misinterpreting the policy mandate as a popularity contest win. And when anyone dares challenge "H" on his staffing decisions, watch that chin raise and profile turn to the pose of..., well, that high chin profile is nearly identical to Lenin's, Mussolini's, Hitler's, Johnson's and FDR's--tyrannical socialists all.

I, for one, am happy for the redefinition of "change"--should come in handy with Miss Brenda's expectations that I will "change" some of the behaviors she has determined to be objectionable and for which she has gotten a "change" promise from the Colonel.
