Put Not Your Trust in Princes….or Pigs with Lipstick Either

Normally I try to be optimistic, reasonable, and grateful but the latest shenanigans by our leaders, and wannabe leaders tries my patience and threatens the other characteristics I mentioned previously. Do the people on the one side REALLY believe a candidate from the other party called one of their own a pig? Do the people on the other side REALLY believe that a woman vice-presidential candidate is such a threat she should be compared, unfavorably, to Pontius Pilate? The average citizen is left with some unhappy choices. I can believe that my political leaders REALLY are that stupid and got elected in spite of suffering from brain-cell deficit disorder or I have to believe that my country’s leaders are so cynical and dismissive of my own intelligence that they think I will believe and act on anything they say just because someone with a label behind their names says it. As Slim Pickens famously said in Blazing Saddles,  “I AM depressed.”
