Capitol Hill Loonies

Even worse than having Donald Trump as president is having much of the Democratic congressmen and senators do nothing for the last three years but blah, blah, blah all day long, trying to impeach him. Is this what their constituents elected them to do?

It's all so tiring, childish and embarrassing. And so what if he is impeached? It is meaningless since it will be voted down in a heartbeat by the Republicans in the Senate. Talk about a waste of time!

Sometimes it seems that our leaders are the worst among us. And sadly, that may be true. According to a pair of British neurologists, many people in positions of power are actually suffering from something called “Hubris syndrome,” defined thusly in a 2009 article published in Brain: “A disorder of the possession of power, particularly power which has been associated with overwhelming success, held for a period of years and with minimal constraint on the leader.”

Hubris syndrome is notable for 14 clinical features that include manifest contempt for others, loss of contact with reality, restless or reckless actions, and displays of incompetence. Sounds to me like the whole bunch up on Capitol Hill.
