Five Surgeons

It would appear that politicians are emerging as the butt of jokes. Because this joke comes from what is normally the conservative sphere of my life, I am curious to see how this shapes up.

As always, the quotation is fairly close to verbatim, line breaks and all.

In the past, liberals or liberal politicians have been the butt of jokes, not politicians in general. I’m okay with politicians in general, mind, because I think a good percentage of individuals from both parties have long forgotten what it was they were supposed to be doing, but I can’t help but wonder if this kind of attack on politicians in general, coming as it does from the conservative side of things, doesn’t represent a real unrest among that population. (I can only hope that the unhappiness is focused on the ideologues and not on the pragmatic politicians.)
