What is it with politicians who whine about what people say about them. Sarah Palin says she has become more guarded in what she says because people take her words and say mean things about her. The mayor complains that what is written about him is not fair and balanced or wonders why people are saying mean things about him when he is working so dang hard.
Senator Boehnor just cries at a drop of the hat. Even Senator McConnell has choked up on the Senate floor. Senator DeMint just whines that he wants to go home for Christmas so quit putting bills before him about the people's business.
Boo Hoo - get a thick skin and quit your belly aching. Politicians have to have big egos in the first place to run for public office. What did they think; that everyone was going to love every word that came out of their mouths?
All these people chose to put themselves out there to public scrutiny. They seem to have the type of personalities that crave attention. They want the attention evidenced by their endless press conferences, news releases, sound bites before the cameras and media interviews. But they want what is reported and commented on, on their terms. My advice is to quit reading newspapers, blogs, Twitter, and Facebook. Better yet, quit putting yourself out there, giving us every mind numbing little tidbit of information you think we need to know about you and your thoughts and feelings and your supposed accomplishments.
And another thing, get a diction coach. Using words like gonna instead of going to, ta instead of to, hava instead of have a, are not real words.
I have to leave now and go get a little cheese for my whine!
