REALITY?: Politics in Politics

Coming off a year fraught with disappointment to the point of disgust with lack of meaning and principle in those charged with representing positions of trust, i.e., priests without morals, lawyers without ethics, teachers without knowledge, it is disconcertingly calming to depend upon politicians so strongly upholding politics.

politics:  calculated advancement, the use of tactics and strategy to gain power in a group or organization.

With the bombardment of useless political advertising now through the elections in November, I am tempted to sedate myself until it’s over.  Tell me what you did or are going to do, jackass; not what the other guy did.  In one ad, Jim Con…..’s (I forget what it is) name is mentioned once while his opponent’s, Rob Simmons and George Bush’s names are mentioned five times plus being waved on about a dozen hands at the end.  Any wonder I forgot the paying candidate’s name?

I’ll vote for the first candidate who can get through a 60-second ad without mentioning his opponent’s name, what he did bad, or his affiliation with Bush and the war.
