Why is every change in opinion attributed to evolution?
Because it evolved.
Maybe politicians just think they’re Pokemon.
What’s a Pokeman?
Pokemon is a game
The “evolution” in Pokemon is actually metamorphosis.
That matches the politicians better.
I don’t think commentators are actually talking about “evolution” as in Darwin’s “theory of evolution.” I think they’re just using it as a figure to speech to say that something has changed gradually over time (and it’s something they approve of. Otherwise they would say “deteriorated ” 🙂
