Go Figure: Career Pols Don’t Want Others To Fill Their Shoes

I am sure that Shawn does a fine job for her constituents. However, the comment that the “average citizen, should do some time in the position and understand the service and the perspective of public office” is pretty hysterical. Since I argued the case, on rehearing, before the Id S Ct it is my opinion that was what “Term Limits” tried, in reality, to allow. It was the career politicians who overrode the election decision of the “average citizens”, within days of the start of the next legislative session. It was the career politicians who said no “average citizen” you need years of experience to know how to do the stuff we do/Go Figure.
