Carlin on Bipartisanship
Bipartisanship is a word used frequently in the world of politics. Sometimes, “ship” is omitted, and the word is bipartisan. It’s a word that’s become pretty much meaningless. The word isn’t used much in connection with the workplace, but it could be. It’s not uncommon for two or more groups to be at odds on an important issue, and it seems that each group is intent on obfuscating rather then solving the issue. There are those who think that bipartisanship is overrated or misunderstood. The hilarious and irreverent stand-up comedian George Carlin was one of those people.
“The word bipartisan means some larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.”
