Village idiot missing; found making legislation.


By -John Randolph     “Let’s pretend for a minute”, I asked him. “First, imagine that you’re a total idiot, a complete imbecile, an absolute dimwit and, liar. Then, suppose that you are also a member of Congress and, pardon me for being so redundant.” political idiotThen, he said to me, “You don’t have to be so sarcastic” and, I replied, “Can you point out anything that I’ve said that wasn’t the truth? Honesty is the best policy, you know…especially when there is money in it. Of course, to you and me as the average Joe, there’s always a shortage of money. Then, just about the time an average Joe runs for office and gets elected, no sooner do they have their stationery printed up and all their pencils in their desk, that you and I paid for, I might add…they’re no longer an “average Joe.” We were best of pals when we played football together but, try calling him now. You know, at least his voicemail still sounds like the “old Joe” we knew him as. Funny thing, the last time I did get to talk with him, I was so irritated that the last thing I wanted to say to him was; “I’m sure glad to see you’re not letting your upbringing and education get in the way of your total ignorance.” Then, I figured, that’s probably not the best thing to say to someone whose short of money but, somehow found the funds necessary to build his mom and dad that nice new barn. Have you seen that thing? When I die, I want to come back as one of their horses. They eat better than I do. It’s hard to describe the feeling of knowing someone to be as big a doofus as him, being the Chairman of the “House Intelligence Committee.” Trouble is, what he lacks in intelligence, he more than makes up for in stupidity and, you know that old saying about “better to be silent and a man think you’re a fool”? Well, if you’ll notice, he’s silent a lot and, it’s not because of anything except his being lost in thought. You see, that’s unfamiliar territory, to him. He doesn’t ever come back to see us because, those of us who supported him in his campaign, know him for who he is. Truth is, he’s cruelly depriving a village somewhere of having their own idiot. I don’t know what makes him so dumb but, whatever it is, it’s sure working. Do you remember way back, when we were all trying to encourage him because he seemed to have an inferiority complex? Well, come to find out, it was fully justified. I didn’t think it was possible before but, on our last visit, I swear, he’s gotten dumber but, he sure drives a nice car…wears fancy clothes and, that wad of cash he carries around would choke one of our Draft Horses and, I remember him being a lot nicer, back in high school but, you’ll never believe the last thing I said to him. I said; “I’d advise you as you go back to that fancy office I helped pay for, that you lock the door, turn off the phone and do a little soul searching but, I’m not sure you’d ever find one and, you’re already wasting enough time.” Now, if this sounds like someone you sent to our nation’s capital, it’s no coincidence. It’s all a part of the brainwashing they go through to become a part of the big leagues. You know, kind of like going into the Marines where the Drill Sergeant spends all that time breaking down a recruit in Bootcamp, only to build them up to be a part of a bigger team? Well, politicians are broken down too but, it’s a whole lot more simple. Their brain is confiscated so they can’t think for themselves, they forget their roots and, the people who once truly cared about what happened to them. They’ve forgotten that verse the preacher quoted at our Youth Camp; “What does it profit a man if he gains all the wealth of the world but, loses his own soul?”
