A real problem with politics is taking it seriously. I find it genuinely difficult and I don’t think it’s an unusual attitude. When the best leader you can hope for is a passably benign liar, then it isn’t easy to offer one’s support to this side or that.
Political analysis is a headache too, because mainstream political players are so balls-achingly ghastly.
Most world leaders are appalling shits. A small minority are not quite so shitty, but generating enthusiasm about matters of degree is not appealing.
