Maybe that's why they're so obedient

So I stumbled across the best thing to come out of England since fish, but not chips. The term "dog whistle politics," a phrase the English use to describe political phrases meant to be only heard by certain segments of the population, much the way your puppy is the only one to hear the annoying shreik of a dog whistle.

For an example...

When asked about evolution, George Bush said he hasn't made up his mind yet as to whether or not evolution is a real phenomenon.

Yes, that's correct. He's still weighing the facts, pouring over textbooks night and day desperately looking for the answer. Or, as David Cross much more aptly put it:

"That is a tough one...one the one hand you have everything the Bible says about creation and how the world was made, and on the ohter hand you have...facts"
