You know what bugs me? People who make fun of politicians. For that matter, people who get down on lawyers, too, but let me say my piece about politicians. Particularly high-ranking politicians. George W. Bush? How about running against that wildcat, Ann Richards, and coalescing the disparate elements of Texas politics? He is dumb, say the dumbbells of the radio and thereabouts. Hey, you know what, I do not know one single person who graduated from Yale, has an MBA from Harvard, and learned how to fly jet aircraft, who is dumb!
Society is filled with naysayers and nitpickers, from Don Imus on up (or down) who could no more handle the demands of politics than they could split an atom. Politicians are more educated, more honest, more hard-working and care more about this country than 99 percent of the apathetic populace, who know only to turn these guys into cartoon characters instead of taking the time to learn the issues. The system corrupts them, yes, but the people who complain about it do nothing to change it. If they switched places with these guys they would be far more corrupt. Most politicians started off as idealists. Just a reminder, but George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill were politicians. All of them received their fair share of criticism in their time.
As for lawyers, I say go to law school, pass the bar and practice law if you want to get down on these guys (and gals). Criticism of lawyers is more valid than that of pols, but most of the people who do the criticizing are the ne'e'r'do'wells who are too stupid to understand the legal system. Overall, I think stupid people are the ones who should be criticized. Find them and expose them I say!
