political notes from all over

My sister reminded me of this story from when she lived in Wisconsin.

At the time, she was one of the officers in the teaching assistant's union at University of Wisconsin. The union was enough of a presence in the community that politicians would actively try to get the union's endorsement, so she told me of an evening when the union had a candidate's night, and all the local candidates showed up to try to get some support.

One such candidate made a then topical reference to a recent popular movie. "The United States -- it's like the Titanic. The Titanic was a big ship, a great ship, a powerful ship -- just a great ship."

He paused for effect, then continued. "But there are some people who want to turn that ship around!"
