We were seated one evening discussing ferals when it wasn’t long until Sr. Estercolero Pope mentioned politicians. He said that medical researchers are considering using them for experiments instead of laboratory rats because politicians are more plentiful, they have a metabolism close to that of humans, plus the technicians don’t become as emotionally attached to them.
Years ago, Drew Pearsons observed that “rarely will a politican pass any law to which he is subject… Most are moral cowards.” But that’s no reason we cannot imitate them. You’ve seen Ron Smith’s commercial lookalike celebrities on television. These are everyday folks who look and, sometimes, sound like celebrities, but who rent themselves out for a whole lot less than the real issue. The biggest broker in the country for this service is Ron Smith, with offices in New York and Los Angeles
Why not rent someone who looks and sounds like your least favorite political thing and have your impersonator make political speeches, public appearances, press conferences, etc. The legal key is never to actually identify the actor as the real person. Let the media and audience assumption do the job for you. Never deny, just never formally identify. You can have a lot of fun with this.
If you need someone to thank for this kindness, say “Hi” to Marla and Melanie, twin dynamos of creativity in Phoenix. As Marla points out with a sly smile, “Everytime I see Ronald Reagan on television, I am reminded of that famous line from the Wizard of Oz, ‘Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.'”
