The altruistic art of lifting about half of the money from each of our wallets every year and spending it with prudence, enlightenment and efficiency.

40% of our fellow adults are gleefully satisfied with the benevolent outcomes of this arrangement. You know this because when it’s election day, they don’t vote.
“I’m not going to vote, I hate politics.”

“Really? That’s amazing, I thought you loved politics. When I reach over the table and grab one fry from your plate you throw a complete conniption. But every year when your politicians take, in total, more than half of your hard-earned money, you don’t vote to do a thing about it. So I think you secretly love having a bunch of rich, old white men take your money and do whatever they want with it, no matter how demeaning and controlling their laws are to your life and to the lives of the people you love. That's quite a fetish you've got going on there, I hadn’t realized you were such a political submissive.”

A slowly expanding world wide blow out sale on human rights since 2001 A.D.
Politics declare war on <insert overblown reason> and slowly dismantle all your rights like free speech and the freedom of opinion for their paymasters from industry, economy and commerce.

In the United States and North Korea: The fine art of mindfucking the average citizen into believing logical fallacies and getting rewarded with money, power, fame, and a place in the history books for doing so.

Everywhere else: The fine art of governing a country.
George W. Bush: "Al Qaeda attacked us because they were jealous of our freedom!"

Normal person: *sheepishly accepts bullshit assertion*

Intelligent person: "So, Mr. President, you expect me to believe that a terrorist network with more than enough resources to instigate a revolution and try to install more democratic governments than those that currently exist in Iraq and Afghanistan, decided to, instead of taking this course of action, attack the United States, its greatest potential ally in a hypothetical struggle for freedom? You expect me to believe that they childishly lashed out at us instead of working toward achieving greater liberty like the adults they are? You expect me to believe that we Americans are such hot shit that the entire population of the Middle Eastern world is secretly jealous of us? And you expect me to believe that 9/11 WASN'T motivated by the violent US interventionism in the Middle East that has cost so many innocent lives in that region, or covert CIA bombings which claimed many lives and were performed on targets that we had little reason to believe were actually housing terrorists, and also not by the Zionist pro-Israel attitude that we have taken in every dispute between Israel and any other country in that region, despite the circumstances? You, sir, are a brazen liar and an asshole. Go fuck yourself, and everyone that believes your insidious brand of bullshit politics is retarded."

the quote-unquote "refined" art of speaking, often for long periods of time, without actually saying anything.
Democrats and Republicans alike are masters of the art of politics.

A giant waste of time.
Who ever goes crazy over politics is an idiot.

Some boring ass shit. Seriously.
Dude #1: Hey Dude #2, aren't politics fun and interesting?

Dude #2: No.

A permanent flamewar. Includes edit wars on laws and bills, name calling, badmouthing other people, and other gratuitous foolishness.
LOL, Newt Gingrich is such a troll. Of course, he engages in politics.
