"Reform" / "Change"

(Eerily strange parallel between a scene in O Brother Where Art Thou? and the current poticial scene...)

PAPPY: Languishing! "Dang" campaign is languishing! We need a shot in na arm! Hear me, boys? In na "dang" ARM! Election held tomorra, that "sonofagun" Stokes would win it in a walk!

JUNIOR: Well he's the reform candidate, Daddy.

(Pappy narrows his eyes at him, wondering what he's getting at.)

JUNIOR: Well people like that reform. Maybe we should get us some.

(Pappy whips off his hat and slaps at Junior with it.)

PAPPY: I'll reform you, you soft-headed "sonofagun!" How we gonna run reform when we're the "dang" incumbent "party"! (He glares around the table.)
