Politicians Say The Dumbest Things
Last night we had the presidential debate. I am not fond of Politicians,yet, I did watch it all. There are no winners in these things. In this particular election it seems to be pretty juvenile and petty, with lots of name calling, maintaining positions even if they are wrong, lying through their teeth and of course the ol’ “you can’t vote for the other one because they aren’t suited to the job”. Wait a minute what am I saying? This election is just like any other we have had, but now we have more access to information so it seems different. They said some pretty inane things last night as well. I heard “gun epidemic” “Climate change a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese” “Broad-based, inclusive growth” “the cyber” and my favorite “nobody called Sean Hannity.”
While at the time they all sounded good, (except gun epidemic, was wondering if one got rid of it, the epidemic, with a shot) and somewhat intelligent (at times) when you go back and read the transcript it gets a bit ridiculous. It got me to wondering and remembering other elections, other debates and campaigning. I decided that politicians are ready and willing to make fools of themselves and say whatever comes to mind. Here are some of the dumb things politicians say.
