Platter of Shit

Quote of the Day:
I look at these [undecided voters] and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors?, I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention?

To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. "Can I interest you in the chicken?" she asks. "Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?"
-David Sedaris, in a New Yorker essay on the very odd American called "the undecided voter."
