The Daily Breeze laments that California voters are sending the same legislators to Washington that have littered our city councils, county seats, and state legislature.
On one hand, media elites want experience. On the other hand, they want diversity and integrity.
The rare combination of seniority without venality is not an easy mix to measure out.
The majority of ascending politicians are Democrats, for starters. For today's liberal politicians, government is their career, power is their aim, and getting votes and a public following is their game. To expect them to treat statesmanship as a part of their livelihood instead of the mainstay of their lives is to tell a fish to swim once in a while, then get back to breathing on dry land. Not only would they die, but they would start to stink up the shoreline.
The Daily Breeze endorsed a heavy slew of Democrats just before the November 6th election, and now they complain that the new crop of Congressmen are not a "breath of fresh air?" They endorsed the same set of "stale" politicians.
