In Defense of Politicians

Anyone who demeans politicians with shallow comments meant to amuse, but not necessarily to inform us, should consider what it would be like to have a job like theirs. Can you imagine a job that requires you to take in the cacophony of voices offering you opinion and suggestions? Then, to have to take on the defensive and offensive stands to keep your job; all the while doing the careful balancing act of maintaining your ideals, but realizing the value of pragmatism, is a daunting task.
I would offer some advice to the naysayers: first, before you cast aspersions, dive in and get a taste of what it is like. If you can’t do that at least consider what it would be like to hold their job.
