Pretty much sums up what's going on in this administration!

In the interest of equal time, we might note:
“You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.”
-George W. Bush

Also instructive:  there is no evidence linking the above quote to either Lincoln or P.T.Barnum, to whom it is also often attributed.  All of us are fooled some of the time.

^^^ Heh.  Sounds like Bukowski was cribbing from William Butler Yeats  (The Second Coming):

" The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."
