Know Your Buffoons! Buffoonicus contortius

Want a sneak preview of the book? Here's the third in our series where we help you "Know Your Buffoons", featuring the amazing art of John Pennisi. Meet the "Agenda Gymnast", a Buffoon that will say or do anything to reach a desired goal. They twist and turn and contort to justify the means used to reach their end. 

What better example of "Agenda Gymnasts" than the shifting positions on Presidential impeachment? In 1998, when President Bill Clinton  was impeached, then-Congressman Lindsey Graham and Congressman Jerry Nadler disagreed on the impeachment. Nadler argued that the will of the people should not be overturned by an act of Congress. Graham argued that impeachment was about cleansing the office of the presidency. Fast forward over twenty years later and, wouldn't you know it, Nadler and Sen. Graham's positions diametrically reversed on the impeachment of President Donald Trump. 

They literally exchanged flip-flops!
