The Last Straw! I'm sick and tired of the cliches I keep hearing in politics:
Dance with the one who brung you.These cliches should be avoided like the plague. They're old hat. If the politicians don't turn over a new leaf and try to stay one day ahead of yesterday, they'll be thrown to the curb with yesterday's garbage.
That dog won't hunt.
The president must walk and chew gum at the same time.
I know a politician relies on tried-and-true colloquialisms to avoid putting his foot in his mouth. But by sticking to them like white on rice, he just digs himself into a deeper hole. I mean, they're not the best thing since sliced bread or anything. To the voters, the cliches go in one ear and out the other. Take a chance and say something that appears to come out of left field. It would make a world of difference.
