In looking forward to Mother's Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they cleanup are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terrific mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none has dirty hands from cleaning up messes. There are two kinds of politicians in our country. Those who make messes and those who allow those messes to be made. Wouldn't it be nice to find a politician who actually would clean up a mess? Our country is in the soup, and not the kind of soup your mother used to make. Politicians make soup out of circumstances that nobody can stomach while mothers have a marvelous way of making soup out of almost anything, and it tastes heavenly, plus it is good for you. Recently, some politicians have been in an uproar and quite nervous over the swine flu situation. And there is good reason. With all the pork in Washington these days, they should be afraid they might catch whatever is going around. Maybe, and I know I'm a little sadistic here, it might be good for a couple of them (okay, all of them) to come down with some kind of flu to send them to their beds for at least a month. Possibly a high fever might clear up their thinking. Plus, our country could use a vacation from politicians. We could put them all in quarantine until the danger is over. (I'll let them know when it is over. Honest. Cross my fingers and hope to vote.) But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions. "Have you washed behind your ears?" "What time are you getting back?" "Do you have clean underwear?" "If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you?" It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. I firmly believe asking questions is a highly refined art. Politicians, for example, ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take 197 polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Politicians rarely expect answers to their questions. They are all rhetorical. They ask questions in such a way that nobody in their right mind could ever answer it. Quite frankly, if they ever got an answer to a question they would be so shocked they would not know what to do about it. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately...without delay. Question a politician, you get the runaround. Question your mother and she will chase you around. It would be more beneficial to be chased around by your mother than to have some politician give you the runaround. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is that they never stop until the work is finished. Everybody has heard the old saying, "A man works from sun up to sun down, but a woman's work is never done." At the end of the day, every mother has something to show for her work. It would be beneficial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or five kids.
