Politicians Deserve Respect? [] Yes [] No [] Maybe?

Wow. Here' s a headline you don't see often enough: Most Politicians Honest and Deserve Respect. You can read Frank Pignanelli and LaVarr Webb's column at http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,605153275,00.html

Speaking of Mr. Webb, here's an interesting excerpt from today's Utah Policy Daily:

Bramble Weighing Options

Sen. Curt Bramble is still considering whether to run for Congress in the 3rd District. If he jumps in, it would become a very interesting three-way race for the GOP nomination among incumbent Rep. Chris Cannon, businessman John Jacob, and Bramble. Jacob’s entry into the race has not deterred Bramble, but perhaps has accelerated his timing on making a decision. In 2006, Bramble will be in the middle of his four-year Senate term, so he could retain his Senate seat should he lose. In a discussion last week, Bramble seemed to be weighing his options carefully, but appeared very interested in the race.

A few numbers from one of your sister states - but perhaps these statistics corss state lines...

67 per-cent of politicians are thoughtful hard working people who love their country and sacrifice daily for it. They deserve respect.

13 per-cent are sincere and patriotic but haven't developed the the modesty and depth to really serve well. These types are the most easily manipulated by money, ladies, trinkets, and shallow philosophies.

10 per-cent are in it only for the power and perks that attach to their position.

The final 10 per-cent are lunatics, but most of these serve at the national level.

Sincere regards to the 67!

Missouri? Michigan? Miami? Minnesota? ... Massachusetts? (Is that you, Mitt?) C'mon, you can't just leave us hanging like that.
