“It was just colorful. We were playing. I thought we were playing…unfortunate the left had to get their panties in a bunch,” Hyde said. Robert F. Hyde is a candidate for Congress in Connecticut.
Hyde’s comment says much about our current political environment. Politicians play fast and free with their responsibilities. When they’re caught doing something wrong, their defense is “I though we were playing.”
We wouldn’t hire most of these people for jobs that required any discretion, judgment, or ethical standards, but we vote them into powerful offices. At the very least, they run for office as in Hyde’s case, thinking it’s a distinct possibility they’ll get elected. Sad part is, they’re right. ~Kindly
