In a recent Daily Show episode, John Stewart and John Oliver exploit how mechanically manipulative our politicians are becoming in their actions. They reveal how much of it is simply unintelligible acting; the truth is never interpreted and the people are of no concern. These politicians flash their "democratic" persona's and mix in a "suitable" identity so that the masses will succumb to their words. Barrack Obama is the greatest at it, that is when he has his teleprompter.
