Today's Cartoon: Silvio Berlusconi Faints During Rally Speech

For some strange reason, political figures collapsing at the podium seems to be a fairly regular occurrence. To me this seems extremely odd, considering the inherent cushiness of the profession. I mean, who knew that besides getting shot, one of the other occupational hazards of being a politician would be over exertion while delivering a speech ;)

Oh sure, some of these politicial figures I'm referring to may be considered old and feeble, but if you take into account that many of them have never done an honest day's work in their life, then they should still be in much better condition than their blue collar counterparts... Or perhaps this is the problem.

Maybe it is because many of these so-called "career politicians" are so used to living such cozy lifestyles that they have become soft to the point that for them, delivering a simple speech in the heat of the spotlight, is the equivalent to shoveling mounds of manure on a hot summer's day. Then again, that analogy could probably apply to just about anyone afiliated with politics; not because they find delivering speeches strenuous... but because they thoroughly enjoy the "smell" of their own bullsh*t ;)
