A manipulative device used by politicians
to agree and support
the popular view of a particular
group or groups of people in order secure
their vote. Although the philosophy or interest of this particular
politician is not necessarily in tune with
group, he or she will appear as though
he or she agrees with
during the election season, in order
to win his/her sear.
The interest of particular
groups may be somewhat farfetched, including creating Utopia's for them to live in or to achieve the so called
"rainbows" and "butterflies" they so want to have. But, if that is what the educated
politician has to agree with
to win on election day, then he/she will do it.
Gullible Citizen: I want the government
us pay our mortgages, pay for our kids to go to college, and help
pay our utility bills.
Politician's mind: This
may be pure pandering
because there is NO way the government should or can take
care of any of those
requests; but, i guess I'll have to say "sure thing".
