Politics And Politicians
The movie was typical Robin Williams with the first half being non stop laughter and the second half more serious with a message. I give it a high entertainment value, but don't watch it if you can't laugh at what you politically believe in.
The movie made me stop and think about running for politics again. I've thought about it, and have had near random strangers tell me I should, but I just can't quite bring myself to agreeing that it's a good idea.
Then today, I went to our local Chamber of Commerce's city council debate. It was another confirmation that watching politics, and especially making fun of it is a great idea, but being a politician... not so great. So, I left the debate full from a great breakfast of eggs, sausage and fruit and reflected that while local politics are the most important and often easiest arena to get involved in, I'll stay involved with voting, but not active participation for now.
