    •  When you boil it down.... (3+ / 0-)

      ... most of the elected officials serving in Washington D.C. are singularly unimpressive. Unfortunately this applies to both sides of the fence, if more acutely felt on the right.

      The sheer volume of bootlicking, mendacity, begging, posing, and calculation required to even get into the game is going to disqualify nearly anybody with intellect and a moral compass. And that's just getting to first base.

      Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.
