Pet Peeve: Politicians don't "serve"
"People should remember that Duke Cunningham has honorably served this country, sometimes in great danger, for 35 years." - Rep. Duncan Hunter
Meant to post this awhile ago... it always bugs me when politicans talk about their "service" to the country. I don't buy it. Being a politician is a job, and a great one at that. You become famous, and have multiple very lucrative exit options should you ever decide to not "serve" any longer.
And let's not use a similar verb to describe what politicians do and what soldiers do.
So here's to never having to hear another politician say "it's been my pleasure to serve the people of...". It should be: "it's been really fun to see myself in the papers. I'm now going to make $50,000 a speech. Thanks!"
