• If they're getting good things done, why talk about anything else? That's what everyone really wants. Every time I realize they're lying to maintain a good image, it just makes me wonder what they're doing to make the good press happen. What favors had to be traded? Who's palms had to be greased? What hidden costs will we potentially never be aware of? I'm proudly a bleeding heart, but good guys shouldn't have much to hide. Especially if they truly view themselves as public servants. They owe honesty to all they serve.
