“Edna, check out my announcement.”
Edna read the page, looking over her husband’s shoulder: I hereby declare my candidacy for City Council.
“But Ed, you didn’t say what you stand for.”
Ed smiled. “That’s easy. Education. Economic growth. Low taxes.”
Edna looked puzzled. “But how . . . . ”
Ed cut her off. “I’m not falling into that trap.”
Edna was still confused. “How can you get elected if you don’t offer specific ideas?”
“That’s exactly how I expect to get elected!” Ed raised his index finger as he pontificated further. “Specifics are the enemy of every politician.”
Edna shrugged. He might actually win.
