Daze Of Experience

Hat tip to Santa for this one:

You couldn't get a job at McDonald's and become district manager after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon.

You couldn't become a journeyman plumber after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't join the military and become a general after a 143 days of experience.

You couldn't get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.

But....

From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United States Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate.

That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working. After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander-in-Chief and Leader of the Free World: 143 days.

We all have to start somewhere. The Senate is a good start, but after 143 days, that's all it is -- a start.

And, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with this and is campaigning for him. We wouldn't accept this in our own line of work, yet some are okay with this for the President of the United States of America? Come on, folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol!

Or are we?


God help Amerika.

By the same token, if you were a blitheringly senile old man who voted with the left most of the time, and spent the bulk of your days championing gun-grabbing and other socialist, collectivist causes, you couldn't palm yourself off to the voters as conservative,
YET...
Let there be a politically-created police-action against terrorism going on, a GOP administration top-heavy with pragmatic, Papist war-profiteers, and let the same geeze stand up and scream "Veteran" and hand-pick a lady Fundamentalist to a position with absolutely no practical political power, and almost half the same nation salaams whatever he says like he's Reagan reincarnated...
WTF (and I don't mean "world trade federation")!?
