TheLongTalk has a post election question for you.
Imagine for a moment that you’ve been sentenced by a cruel judge to life in prison for a crime you didn’t commit. Your sympathetic warden can’t let you go, but has decided to give you your choice of bunkmate.
You can have a known liar and violent offender. Someone who will swear up and down to you that he’s not going to slit your throat in the night, but you still might want to sleep with one eye open.
Or you can have an inmate that’s renowned for his honesty. A stand up guy, that when he tells you he’ll slit your throat is going to slit your throat… no questions asked.
Which bunkmate would you choice?
Gotta love the two party system,
