It's In The Bag

At least twice a day I walk the family dog. Essential tools for walking the dog include bags into which a primary purpose of the walk is picked up and carried for later disposal.
In neighborhoods where dog owners regularly walk their dogs no one gives the bag a second thought. Carrying around a sack of shit is not only normal, it's expected. Neighbors stand and chat while holding those bags.
Aside from responsible dog owners, the only other group of people I can think of that routinely lugs around sacks of shit are politicians.
Of course, the species from which their bags are filled differs considerably from man's best friend as do the purposes of the bags' contents.
We responsible dog owners properly dispose of our sacks of shit. We don't want anyone to be inconvenienced or offended by our dogs' digestive garbage.
Politicians, on the other hand, glibly remove their bullshit from their bags and spread it around hoping that eventually we will think its the best thing since sliced, white bread.
By the way, if you feed a dog enough sliced, white bread, it will go into convulsions.
So when will we go into convulsions from all the stuff we're being fed?
