First responders are there to do a job, politicians are there to make a buck for themselves.

I'm still waiting for the punch line. Surely some of the brilliant minds on this board can think of great punchlines for this!
First Responder - someone designated or trained to respond to an emergency
Politician - a person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization
Hey, I didn't make these definitions up!
