political party

Note to Self:

Don't be fooled by the machinery.  A political party is not really a party.  It's a philosophy, a platform, a virus whose goal is simply to maintain power.  Politics have pundits.  Parties have alcohol and music and dancing or, if you're too young for that, pinatas and cake.  For what it's worth, you are probably more at home with cake and the blind beating of a cardboard cartoon character. (After all, your son's birthday party might be the only day you get to physically display your pent-up anger toward Elmo.) So unless Nancy Pelosi starts offering guacamole, let's use faction instead of party.
