We have them. We have good conservative candidates. The problem is they don't want to step into the swamp. They don't want their children humiliated, their wives ridiculed, their slightest indiscretion - however irrelevant to the office - blown out of proportion and as of the last several years - they don't want a barrage of outright lies as they try to fix the country.
So what do you get? Someone who LIVES in the swamp. Someone for whom the muck and dirty dealing is their home.
The thing about dirty, slimy tricks in politics is, it works. And you either get someone up there that is either very good at the dirty tricks, or is clever enough to dodge it. You will NOT get someone who avoids the crap by simply being squeaky clean because the truth doesn't matter - it doesn't matter if you have nothing to hide and no skeletons in the closet, your opponents need only to make people think they are there.
Coulter has this bit in today's column--
"John Brooks, Chicago's former fire commissioner, filed a lawsuit against Daley six months ago claiming Daley threatened to smear him with sexual harassment accusations if Brooks didn't resign. He resigned -- and the sexual harassment allegations were later found to be completely false."
See, you can beat a good person with utter fabrications, because your political connections are better than someone else's.
The reason we have slimy politicians is because the good ones can't survive the battle. Only another snake can beat the snake.
“ Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of
authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made
to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are
men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They
promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
-- Daniel Webster
