How to describe a politician

Muckraker has always struggled to find an apt way to describe politicians. She has called them indolent, thieves, robbers and freeloaders.
She has called them diapers that should be frequently changed.
All of which are fitting descriptions, except that they don’t precisely capture what politicians are.

Fortunately, while Muckraker was searching for the right words, someone somewhere had clarity of thought to find the right words.
Some described a politician as a tortoise sitting on top of a pole.

“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he does not belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb person put him up there in the first place”.

Never has anyone so succinctly described the species called politicians. The evidence of their incompetence is there for all to see. Most are out of their depth. They are like rabbits caught in flashed lights. If you think Muckraker is exaggerating just ask yourself when last you heard your MP speak sense in parliament.

Nka! Ichuuuuuuuuuuu!
