Caution signs, slippery pavement ahead

Everyone has seen those signs ‘slippery when wet’. They serve as a warning on roads or public places. It’s sort of like “beware.” But now I can see another use for that signage. Caution of slippery politicians.

When a politician comes off looking slick or slippery look out — and he/she probably is. That sign may need to be applied at elections. Remember the infamous 5 o’clock shadow on Nixon, who was branded tricky Dick? It’s a visual that can turn people off.

A label as slickster can be hazardous to Republicans yet a ticket for success to Democrats. It’s attractive to Democrats. The minute someone appears as a slickster on the right, to a lot of people, it causes red flags and exodus. Dems can win with slippery like slick Willie, and hold them in high regard…. for as long as they can hold on to them.

So on a scale, who are the slicksters in this election? Without question, it would have to be Hillary on the Dem side. There could be a few on the Republican side. Christie seemed slick. Bush tries to be too slick. Some of it can be a character trait in politicians. Rubio can seem slick and even Cruz, to me, has an appearance of slick. Carly had a slick factor. Finally, there looks like some slickiness coming from Trump.

slippery-signWhen faced with an attack or criticism, how slippery do they get? I think I’ll develop my own sliding slick scale. If we rate everything else about them, like honesty and credibility, then maybe we should rate that. A “caution: slippery zone” sign is warranted sometimes.

How about a hotline, should you encounter or spot one:

Dial 1- too-slik-4-me.

    There’s definitely a slickness factor with all of them. The grand prize of course goes to the Hildabeast. It’s not possible to top her no matter how long one lives.

    With regard to the R’s, it’s sad to see these guys clamoring for crumbs and seeing the media report about stupid shit to boost their ratings while reporting nothing. I suppose that’s the “Reality TV” type world we live in with people that have 10 second attention spans.

    Where are the adults? We’ve been saying it for decades.

      Yep, Nox, and it has all created an environment where we have to have our radar out for anything. Their stupid stuff must work on low-info voters. And, like I say, media gets to vote every day. Media has less credibility than anyone, and now they are confused to boot.

    This could be a good idea. Put a warning sign on politicians “Caution of slippery politician”. I will leave it up to you. What do think?

    I got a letter last month, my gastroenterologist retired. Wife who used one at another hospital was informed hers had moved. They worked in a pretty slick manner. They gave one I.V. sedation, not like a politician. Oh wait,… well not I.V.

    I agree with your idea for Slippery signs for Politicians, seems Politicians forget they were elected to serve the people, not to serve themselves. We have a lot of Slippery Politicians here in Australia.

    All pols have slickness. It’s like a sickness. I think the best way to judge is to see who is the slickest and write that one off. Cruz is slick, slipper, and a liar. He cheated Carson out of votes. That’s as slick or slippery as one gets. I’ve written him off and Rubio, very slick with his stories and memorized lines, but he will betray us with amnesty. The only one who isn’t slick is Kasich and he doesn’t have a dog’s chance in hell.

      I’m with you there, Pepp. I have a hard time with Cruz on that, especially as he runs as an outsider. More inside the beltway tactics than anyone. Then I watch him speaking and I see a river of denial. Rubio’s past left a stain. He talks up a good game but I wonder once he gets in what he’d do? Trump uses unpredictability like a weapon.

      From what I’ve seen Ted’s sure no outsider or very non-establishment. Surprise. And his conservative credentials are a question mark along with his reversible positions. Gee, he’s been the one attacking others on exactly those grounds.
