I think that politics is the fine art of saying "That problem is unsolvable; here, have a cookie." If it's a very nice politician, they won't even charge you for the cookie; if it's a very bad politician, they'll throw you in jail for bringing the problem up in the first place.

The problem politicians have now is that as more and more smart people learn more and more about the problems at hand, they come to understand that almost none of them are unsolvable, and they expect the politicians to actually do the job they were hired to do instead of being politic.

Frankly I wish everyone who thinks that politics is a better idea than actually trying should be shot. Whether something small and sharp is shot into them, or they themselves are shot out of a cannon that's just strong enough to get them out of office, I don't care.
