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. Let him follow her 
around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of
