Eff's Rambles (Archive)

Impressed too easily

Some people seem to be enamoured by the shoot from the hip, straight talker. I agree that this trait in a person can be effective, but so can nuance. It disturbs me the way someone can go around yelling invectives and complaints about something and be put on a pedestal. This person is sometimes asked to run for high office. Why? Because they called some politician an idiot? Because they took a commanding tone? Being in office certainly should have more competency requirement that the ability to complain in a way that appeals to emotions. Speaking truth to power is not enough to be a mayor, let alone a president.

The whole idea is absurd.

That guy is an incompetent bastard! Do this and that!

Please send campaign contributions, for I know you are impressed to Hamlin, c/o The Pied Piper.
