I’m thinking. That all we want from our leaders.  Is to be entertained.  To not be bored. Even if that means. Putting up with the ridiculous.  Yes. We are living in the age of the media. Being spoon fed. Not so much knowledge. Rather. Entertainment. We don’t elect reasoned leaders anymore. Instead, we go for the most unusual  and absurd candidates. Simply because they catch our fancy. Through the daily media. Doesn’t matter what they stand for. We don’t care. As long as they are entertaining. Able to hold our attention. Long enough to catch a sound bite. Crafted in an entertaining way. With an assist from captivating oddballs and freaks and clowns. Rising above the crowd. To achieve celebrity status.  Through a shallow media. More dedicated to entertainment. Than to educating and informing us. About real and pertinent issues. That’s the problem, folks. Not knowing. We are being led down a primrose path. To societal destruction. --Jim

It would be great if politicians weren’t allowed to have twitter accounts

As I said from the outset. We like to be entertained.  Thanks for proving my point. --Jim
