For too long, those of us on the left have refused to engage in politics as the rightists do: free of conscience and dead-heartedly. Maybe it's just because we're good people or because we're a tad squeamish or, less generously, because we're just not any good at it
Draw, Antonio, draw, Antonio, draw and do not waste time.
