I'm not sure I agree - errare humanum est - to err is human. Everybody has
the right to make mistakes, to fuck something/anything up. But the key lies
in admitting to the mistake and LEARNING from it. Politicians, in my eye,
don't ever do that. That's scary. And it's even scarier that people allow
them to do it over and over again.
