Tracy Flick Wannabees

One of the sad consequences of paying so much attention to politics is that one starts to get rather disturbed by what ridiculous little people many of Our Great Leaders are. It isn't that I had automatic respect for anyone with the word "Senator" in front of their name and I certainly knew that plenty of them were bad in a variety of ways. But I guess it'd never really internalized that idea that so many of them were just petty mediocrities and silly childish people with fragile egos.
