BC22ED24-A993-46D2-B263-09AC1E8BF6B9“It’s like taking candy from a baby. I can do it with ease,” Mitch said.

“You’re an irredeemable windbag, you know,” his assistant said.

“Maybe so, but I inspire people,” Mitch said. “I get them to do things they don’t really want to or like to do.”

“And you honestly think they don’t begrudge you for that?” his assistant asked.

“Who cares? Resistance is futile. I own them,” Mitch said.

“Until the next election,” his assistant said under his breath as he left the room.
