Person A to person B: That scheming fool of a mechanic tried to convince me that my brake pads needed replacing, when i went to get my oil changed. I just put new ones on!

1: A Democratic Party politician who thinks that the path to power within the party comes from 'playing the game' with the powers that be; of giving and securing favors, and building a network based on mutual self-interest within the ranks. Mechanics are experts at working the system which they are a part of and believe in. To a mechanic, voters are only ciphers who must be made, somehow, to support the party and the party's candidates.

Mechanics love and want power for power's sake. For them words are a means of manipulation, not communication.
"Before Barak Obama showed up, Hilary Clinton, the quintessential Mechanic, thought she had the nomination sewn up. She had cashed in all her markers, collected on all favors owed her, bribed with promises of power all influential people in the party, and thought she had greased the skids all the way to the White House. Unfortunately for her, a good Savior beats a good Mechanic every time, no matter how well the Mechanic has wired the system."
