This is Intentionally Vicarious… I’m Todd Youngblood… And I was just sitting here at my desk pondering aimlessly… And once again the sorry state of our political affairs reared its ugly head.
We’ve got 11 more months of presidential campaign antics to endure. We’ll be subjected to every candidate’s lofty rhetoric, unkeepable promises, polished outrage, righteous indignation, affected depth of intelligence, artificial enthusiasm and worst of all, bullshit sincerity. We’ve survived all this nonsense before. We’ll survive it again, I guess…
If only we could figure out a way to raise our political process to a higher plane. I’ve thought about and researched how to do this quite a lot, and happily enough, I’ve come up with a failsafe action plan. All we need to do is follow the lead of our friends in New Zealand.
We need Congress to appoint a Wizard. The Wizard of New Zealand is a real guy who has been in office and guiding that country’s political process since 1990. Their economy, living standards and general well-being are higher than ever.
If you’re interested in the job of “Wizard of the United States” – “Wizard of US” for short – post your qualifications in the comments section. Our pals in Washington need some magic.
