Although the Monty Python skit resemblance is more than a function of the accents (the timing is amazing), this is
an honest-to-God a believable portrayal of a typical politician here. Are these the people we need to worry about? Part of me feels like the way you deal with a police state is by ignoring the politicians, who after all never lift a finger to do anything, and attacking the apparatus: the police. Whether politically, legally, or extra-legally, it seems to me that if we've genuinely passed the point of no return, it's not the politicians we need to bring in line but the people who execute their will.
