A friend of mine has a story about reading up on web security. After reading up on SQL injection attacks, he went to a friend's website and logged in as something to the effect of 'end statement or 1' — a statement which evaluates in everyday language like "if a valid user, log in; otherwise, log in". Upon listening to the story, I realized something important... political strategies are a form of injection attack. Take the Republican voting strategy, for instance: "If you support tax breaks for the rich, expensive foreign wars, fewer political rights for the socially or economically disadvantaged — OR OPPOSE KILLING BABIES! — vote for us!"
