Centuries ago, everyone figured out that the best way to win an election is to have a likeable candidate. So what next? Everyone has a likeable candidate. How do they get theirs to stand out and be liked best? The candidate is already likeable. The more you try to be more likeable, the harder it gets. It's like trying to reach the speed of light.

Soon after the above discovery, everyone also figured out it's a lot easier to question the likeability of the other candidates. You don't even have to dig up real dirt. All you have to do is raise embarrassing questions in the minds of the public. And you don't even have to reach them all.
