Why Mothers Would Make Good Politicians (standard:humor, 910 words)

God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother.

In thinking of 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. Moreover, the messes they cleanup are not their doing, which 
is what makes it so terrific. 

Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. 

Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a
terrible 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. 

Not too long ago some politicians were in an uproar and quite nervous
over the swine flu situation. And there was 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 and send them to their beds for at least a month. 
Maybe 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.) 

But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful
politicians. There are several reasons why I think so. Mothers, 
generally speaking, know how to ask questions. 

"Have you washed behind your ears?" "What time are you coming 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.

Their universal answer to everything is, “Because I'm your mother!” 

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 

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
