It looks like inexperienced candidates did well in recent political primaries, and incumbents are uncomfortable.
That's a good thing. I'm not a Tea Partier, I don't think, but I might be able to find a great deal of sympathy with them in one respect; I think we should all agree - all us voters, of all political persuasions - to simply vote out every incumbent in every election cycle, if that means putting a trained monkey in office.
"Hey," one might object, "...do you really want the country run by a bunch of amateurs?".
Yes... yes I do. The professionals, so well practiced in the Art of the Deal, have done far more harm than good. We have grown accustomed to our ruling class behaving like cads... plying us with ham-fisted flattery and cheap wine in the hopes we will "put out", and they have too often been successful (to our shame). Now, though, it begins to look more like a mugging... or date rape.
Much better to go out on a real date, even with that geeky, gawking kid from the AV club, the one with the allergies, the corny jokes the donkey laugh.
The smooth operators have left us a wreck.
