The Book of Political Life 

Today's reading is from the Book of Political Life,
Chapter 1, verses 1-15:
1. In the beginning was the Plan.
2. And then came the Assumptions.
3. And the Assumptions were without form.
4. And the Plan was without Substance.
5. And darkness was upon the face of the Voters.
6. And the Voters spoke among themselves saying, "It is a crock of shit and it stinks."
7. And the Voters went unto their Members of Parliament and said, "It is a crock of dung and we cannot live with the smell."
8. And the Members of Parliament went unto their Party saying, "It is a container of organic waste, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."
9. And the Party went unto the Cabinet Ministers, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
10. And the Cabinet Ministers spoke among themselves, saying to one another, "It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
11. And the Cabinet Ministers went to the Deputy Prime Minister, saying unto him, "It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."
12. And the Deputy Prime Minister went to the Prime Minister, saying unto him, "It has very powerful effects."
