Me and political life
I think this is the main reason I could never be in politics. It has nothing to do with intelligence, charisma, experience, leadership, managerial competence, or vision, all of which I admittedly lack. It is that I could never handle having to deal with all the fools, and by the fools, I mostly mean the pundits - people whose job it is to say outrageous things that seem interesting to those who already agree with them in order that their team wins. After all, it is only important that your team wins. So it is OK to ignore facts, distort them, hide them, attack people personally, do whatever it takes to win. It is such a waste of time and life to have to deal with them.
