"And after all, your pigs are far more intelligent than the other animals, and therefore the best qualified to run the farm - in fact, there couldn’t have been an Animal Farm at all without them: so that what was needed (someone might argue), was not more communism but more public-spirited pigs."
Today, I made a project that combines my repeaters with the wonderful New York Times Campaign Finance API. Called Sausage Making 2012, it visualizes the total campaign contributions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as the speed at which meat is ground— evoking the famous quote,
“Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made,”
often falsely attributed to Otto von Bismarck, but likely first written by the American poet John Godfrey Saxe.
Now THAT is spectacular! Talk about sausage fests! Looks like coarse ground beef to me, but I laughed. A lot.
Do check out the N.Y. Times Campaign Finance API.

I got into the spirit of things and scraped this cutie
from the website of Downtown Josh Brown (The Possibly Reformed Broker). More sausage.
