Politicians explained

This pretty well sums up the MP’s of today. An elderly farmer was in the ER having stitches put in his hand due to an accident with a piece of machinery. The doctor carrying out the procedure struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the conversation got around to politicians and their role as our leaders. The old man said, “Well you know most politicians are ‘Post Tortoises’.”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘Post Tortoise’ is. The old farmer said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fencepost with a tortoise balanced on top. That’s a post tortoise.”

The old farmer seeing the puzzled look on the doctor’s face continued to explain.

“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there. He’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you wonder what sort of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.”
