All this talk about voting into office people who are outside the Beltway. Citizens want unscathed, novices to run for high priority offices. The "seasoned career politian" is a dirty word nowadays. I'm coming around and beginning to agree. It could not get any worse. For years I've heard, "throw the bums out". Now the chant is, "take back our government!". Ok, fine with me. Let's elect novices, ex-witches, quitters, tax evaders, liars, adulterors, and others embroiled in multiple legal actions. These are the people who comprise the exalted "tea party" movement. Let's hold these tea party candidates up to the same scrutiny and standards we had and set for President Obama. I want to see birth certificates, college transcripts, tax records, grocery receipts and a list of all personal and business associates since they were 18. Americans are relentless in cracking the human "code" and are expert at looking into every nook and cranny. No matter who we elect, as sure as the sun rises and sets, we'll spend every waking moment tearing them down, too.
