Dumb Politician.

Good Evening:

The two or three of you who follow my Blog will no doubt say that the title of this post is redundant, and to be honest, you are entirely correct, as even the Great Mark Twain was quoted as saying "Suppose you were a Politician and suppose you were a crook, But I repeat myself", so I think it is fair to say that people look at most Politicians with a good deal of skepticism , as do I. That we are driven to have a low opinion of most of the elected officials in Washington and elsewhere, however, is a crying shame.

The thing that prompted me to write this particle article is the broohaha that was developed over the last few days about Congressman Weiner (rhymes with wiener) who apparently had a long habit of sending explicit pictures of himself in erotic poses and stages of undress.

Sadly, I am no longer shocked by this type of juvenile behavior on the part of one or more of our "Servants", as it has become too commonplace.

This was brought even further to the spotlight by a Show hosted by Former Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York, who as you may recall, resigned his Elected Position when it came to light that he had spent upwards of $40,000.00 on hookers. Now, I don't know about you, but this seems to me to be a case of a Rat calling a Possum a long nosed S.O.B. Here's this clay footed individual(Spitzer)making a great deal of money in hosting a T.V. show, on this occasion anyway, about a politician who displays a lack of not only common sense, but common decency as well.

It has only been a short time since we found out that former California Governor "Ahnold" Schwartzenegger had fathered an illegitimate child with his housekeeper, and apparently is on his way to an expensive divorce as a result, and now we have yet another Sap (sexually atrocious politician) in the news .

Good Grief, Charlie Brown, is it too much to expect for Politicians to behave themselves at least while they are in a position of Public Trust, or what used to be called thus. I expect we can sling a modifier at that Title now.

Maybe a third Political Party should be formed, suggestions for a name of this party will be welcomed, but I lean toward "The Grand old Horndogs".

Remember to vote and vote often, and if you really WANT to look at a list of Political Criminals and disgraced Politicians (as if being a Pol isn't disgrace enough!)go to Set aside at least an hour to read this list.
