Politics can be fun and election campaigns are the most fun part of politics. You get to see a bunch of disingenuous schemers in suits flying around the country trying to convince people they are sincere, honest and trustworthy. They are somehow able to present, almost simultaneously, bi-polar images of mildly deranged hubris and tender-hearted supplication. "I'm very humble you know, I'm great, they all suck, I am a regular person with simple needs, I'm the only one here who can rule with honour and strength, but I love you sweethearts, now BOW DOWN TO ME!"
