Broken Adonis - Infested Venus

The political climate of the US is polarized into two sides.  The culture of America typified the election last year with two main candidates. One a self aggrandizing egotistical power hungry capitalist.  Who's attitude seems to have been distilled from the 1980's corporate hostile takeover culture.  The other candidate, who expressed progressive leanings, was more much more ensconced in obvious corporate catering (which is surprising to me, given the opposition's candidate) and had brokered deals with corporations and various back-room dealings.
