On John McCain, Hillary Clinton, And Ethanol
Both of these two Senators were adamantly (and admirably, from my perspective) opposed to the corn ethanol ripoff (which ended up costing taxpayers tens of billions of dollars) of the early and mid 2000s....until, UNTIL, they decided to run for President, and then they suddenly found religion on it and damned if they didn't start pimping themselves all over the corn state of Iowa (who's the idiot who decided to make THAT the first caucus?). You want to know why the country is fucked? Multiply this by the hundreds of other special interest groups (banks, sugar, unions, environmentalists, the Military Industrial Complex, etc., etc.) and maybe there's the answer, folks.
