Entering the Ring

Posted by Jabawacefti

Would you ever consider, given the prevailing political climate, to enter politics as a candidate?

I'm crazy but not that crazy.

I'm that crazy, for sure.

But I'd never do it. Same reason as Colin Powell - why would I put my family through that?

My own demons and skeletons I'd own up to/defend/apologize for, but I wouldn't ask my family to do the same.

I would want to think I'd do it, but with the vile hatred and ignorance flying around, I'm inclined to say, plague on both your houses.

Yup.

Pox on your first-born. All that stuff.

Seriously - in our current climate, there is absolutely no way that George Washington ("Sure, he led the nation to independence, but he's so stiff and unlikable!") or Thomas Jefferson ("Did you, or did you not, have sex with that slave, Sir?") would have been elected.
