Politicians should receive awards for being stupid and crazy. Laws should be made for political stupidity. When a politician does stupid he should automatically be upseated not impeached. The stupidity is the only reason for upseat.
For example this month alone, I would have taken out a couple for their unlawful and unkind deeds. These deeds have been implemented simply because the politician has power. No rhyme, no reason.
The first upseat would go to State Rep. Monique Davis, the protector of the statue, "Defiance."She stole a statue or took a statue or secured a state, depending on your point of view, from Chicago State University. Her boyfriend, had the keys to the storage room. And her state dollar allocated to the university gave her rights, she thought to take the art work that she allocated $25,000 for. She was wrong and now will return the statue to the school for safe keeping after it was determined that the statue was missing in sitting. Bravo Madame.
The second award, glad you didn't make it to the White House, goes to Mr. John Edwards, who lied about the baby, his baby, that was conceived on the campaign trial. He lied to the American public, as his wife bravely fought her illness. The National Enquirer dug up the dirt and stayed on the case until the truth was revealed in a new book by Mr. Andrew Young. Young was in the Edward's campaign and was asked to tell a lie, which he didn't, to claim the baby as his very own and save the candidate. Edwards is up for the best lie award.
And finally the grave digger award goes to candidate, Governor Dan Hynes. He dug deep as he went into the morgue to find the late Mayor Harold Washington comments on
the employment of Governor Pat Quinn. Hynes could take a page from the history book. His father, Tom, was one of the non supporters of Washington and contested his campaign by starting a brand new party. This was as racist as it gets. Quinn is too much of a gentleman to recall the history, but he should. Hynes should receive the dirty trick award.
What do you think? Is this campaign as usual or should we have special rules for politicians when they perform badly?
