I used to wonder if nuts went into politics or if going into politics made you into a nut.
I've decided only the potentially weak-minded go into politics, then the political power activates their nuttiness.
That picture is a perfect example of why democracy does not work. Ultimately we end up electing morons to office. Of course they have no idea they are morons, and instead not only think they're smart, they think they're smarter than we are.
This is also the perfect example of why women should not be allowed to vote or run for office.
“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” - H.L. Mencken
