Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.
I hate talking about politics. Partly because the facts in each election, major or minor, get so skewed by the media that it’s hard to tell who is telling the truth at the end of the day when everyone writing has their own agenda. Partly because elections bring out the absolute worst in a candidate – I’m pretty sure that if Elmo ran for governor that I’d hate him by the time the election was over. By the time election time rolls around, the mud slinging gets so intense that the sound of a political ad on the tv or radio sickens me – the picket signs on all the lawns on my street irritate me beyond reason and the SNL parodies of political candidates become more compelling and well rounded than the candidates themselves.
I think it’s a terrible shame that politics has become show business.
Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least.
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
It is not in the nature of politics that the best men should be elected. The best men do not want to govern their fellowmen.
We would all like to vote for the best man but he is never a candidate.
There ain’t no answer. There ain’t gonna be any answer. There never has been an answer. That’s the answer.
