Unfit for purpose: A perfect storm!


 A Perfect Storm

We have a perfect storm of incompetence and morally and ethically challenged individuals incuding organizations ruling the Washington Swamp.  Nasty. 

These folks, particularly the Republicans always apparently put their political goals above the security and health of the country.  The Democrats are only slightly better in that they at least preach egalitarian and humane policies should rule. 

Yet led by the ghosts of the "Clintons Past" the Democrats are saddled with a tired old group of swamp creatures of their own construction who seem to be constitutionally unable to relinquish power.
