When I think about politicians and the staff that work for them, it makes me picture the Rugrats.
If you are unfamiliar with this Nickelodeon program it is about a bunch of overgrown babies running around breaking all the rules and making messes that they have no intention to clean up. They are a bunch of boobs that can’t seem to grow up even though in their imaginations they are risk takers and great adventurers. These delusions eventually come to an end after a lot chaos and a disaster that someone else has to come along and clean up after they have had their fun.
Unfortunately, the Nicktoons ultimately learn from their mistakes and adhere to the moral of the story while the DC versions simply continue to throw fits, constantly one up each other while trying to keep up with the Joneses. They lose sight of the story, and so goes the moral of it. Then, the people are left to fend for themselves and are charged to clean up after the disasters they have enthusiastically created.
Yep, that about sums up politics today.
