The Politician’s Position

politicianA politician running for Congress was was asked about his stance on alcohol at a town meeting. Thinking this was a group of teetotalers he started off his spiel by saying, “If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I’m against it!”
From behind, one of his advisers whispered, “This town’s main employer is a brewery!”
Without missing a beat he then added, “But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I’m for it. This is my position, and I will not compromise!”
