Political Job Interviews Begin

April 22, 2012 - Joselyn King
Lets just recap this past political week ...

It started with 11 members of President Barack Obama's security detail being sent home from a trip to Columbia, South America after a night in which about 20 prostitutes reportedly entertained Secret Service agents. (Probably nobody would have known about it had one of the prostitutes and an agent not squabbled about her payment in a hotel hallway.)

The week then ended with Delegate Ryan Ferns, D-Ohio, being cited for driving under the influence (official details to be released later).

In between, Republican U.S. Senate candidate in West Virginia John Raese somehow equated Monongalia County's smoking law with Hitler and the Holocaust, and presumed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney insulted the goods sold by a Pittsburgh-area bakery -- saying they looked as if they "came from the 7-11." (He supposedly meant that as a joke.)

Some might say the media makes too much over the alleged stupidites said and acted out by elected officials. Really??????

It should go without saying their words and actions are indicative of how they will conduct the job entrusted them by the public.

Shouldn't they be held to a higher standard?

They're the public's employees. Shouldn't the public want upstanding employees at their business?
