“Oh … How do you sleep at night?”
I’ve often complained that I don’t understand politics or politicians, but the truth is, I don’t really want to.
I don’t know what it is that makes men and women who say they want to run for office to help make their country, state, county, city a better place and then find themselves sucked into the madness that is American politics. It’s a vocation that takes pretty much decent human beings and turns them into lying, cheating, double-talking cretins who make used car salesmen (no offense) look like followers of Mother Teresa.
I’ve found it amazing over the years that politicians — the ones who settle in for the long haul, pulling their chairs up to the pork, PAC and lobbyist troughs and just digging in like the pigs and gluttons they become — think the American people are so stupid they actually believe their double-talk and bull—-. By the same token, however, why would they think otherwise?…
