I don’t think [Republicans] have to lay out a complete agenda, from top to bottom, because then we would have the national mainstream media jumping on every point trying to make that a campaign issue.
—Peter King (R-NY)
And you know what? He’s probably right! Indeed, King’s statement brings up an interesting point: Elections are often about agendas and campaign issues and such. And all of it happened right under our noses!
I’m just going to go ahead and say that politicians who openly fret that their policy positions, given voice, will turn into “campaign issues” are probably too fucking stupid to hold elective office of any kind.
