Could it be?

Is it just me or are politicians really stupid?

I mean, across the board, all inclusive, none escape the denigration — they are stupid. Local, state, national, international… stupid.

Maybe I’m being generous. Maybe they’re not stupid. Perhaps a better word is selfish.

  1. Ooooh Dan, I can easily step up on a soapbox and give you a v e r y lengthy response.

    I’ll try to behave 🙂

    The political system corrupts. It takes a good man and turns him into a greedy, arrogant, self-righteous — selfish — individual. It is the nature of the beast. You know how it is in Brasil; it is the same here, except we pretend that it is not.

    It’s kind of like Paul’s exhortation to be “in” the world but not “part” of the world: the politicians cross the line and become “part” of it.

  2. Yeap… I know that you mean… It’s totally true… sometimes I catch myself thinking this sort of thing happens only in Brazil.. but actually it’s across the whole world everywhere…
