Government is doomed, I tell you! Doomed!

I don’t think the country is doomed, or society, or the economy, or anything like that. But I really have to wonder sometimes about governance in our country. (And in every other country, I’m sure, etc., etc.)
According to Michelle, “members of Blago’s staff are conducting ethics classes for state workers.”
What next? A former Pussycat Doll giving lectures on modesty? Jenna Jameson’s production manager giving speeches about chastity?
You’d think the good people of Illinois would just vote the bums out, but that presupposes that you can vote non-bums in. And why would anyone who’s NOT a bum want to run for political office in that state? (Or in general, really.)
Sadly for us, Sarah Palin’s are few and far between. Even if you hate her politics, you’ve got to admire the fact that she came along and tossed a good-old-boys network onto their frozen asses, to be stranded in the permafrost and eaten by wolves.
(That’s how I like to imagine it, anyway. Don’t you spoil my daydream!!)
