Strangulation by tie

Chuck Todd now hosts a Meet the Press daily show on MSNBC (MTP Daily). I really like Chuck Todd because he is not afraid to ask the difficult questions to the politicians….and during this chapter of my life, I find myself buried in the political BS.  I tend to lean toward the left in my opinions but I try to listen with an open mind to the rhetoric from the conservative side…and I still lean to the left.  Keeping my head about me makes me feel like a grown up.

Today while watching the talking heads – all men – I found myself totally focused on the suit and tie outfits….or uniforms, if you will.  I became so focused on looking at suit coats, shirts and ties that I was losing focus on what the guest politicians were yammering about.  Who was sitting around one day and thought…you know what would look good…wearing a starched shirt fastened tightly around the throat with a button to enhance Jowels then let’s wrap a piece of cloth around the neck with a knot at the Adam’s apple.  I don’t dislike the look….sometimes I just wish the cloth wrapped around the neck was a lot tighter.  The look was probably fashioned by the same person that decided to put 4 inch spikes on the bottom heel of women’s shoes….

In case you aren’t familiar with the details of politics in this country….let me sum it up for you!  We are screwed!

Until next time….
