A further problem that I have with all politicians, virgin or otherwise, is the matter of ties (as worn around the neck).
Why do they think that discarding a tie makes them 'men of the people' and why would you want a politician to be a man of the people? For my money, I want a politician to look like a politician or even a mortician; to look like a guy just arrived home after a day at the office or at the office secretary isn't my sense of cool regarding politicians or people in public office. These people should dress as if they held you in respect, not as a pack of damned fools buying into a fake 'togetherness'. Or is that just me? Am I missing genuine realtionships when I see them?
If I wanted to vote for the chap at the counter of the hardware store, then I'd ask him to stand for office; I want to vote for a guy with a better education than I have had, for someone with a wider sense of the world out there, with an aura of gravitas that will perhaps convince other politicians that he's a man, not a mouse nor even a windmill. Dammit, Mrs T managed that with Russia and she even convinced Ronald! And I don't remember her showing much of her neck, which I'm still certain wasn't of brass.
