Our political landscape seems far from reaching the desired destination, of restricting campaigns to issues that are geared towards improving the lives of the voters.

Sadly, while such kind of politicking might earn one cheerleaders, who just follow blindly, without the decency to admit when one of their own has done wrong.

That does not advance the course of dealing with issues that affect the lives of ordinary people. In line with the trivia that has engulfed our society lately, there have been squabbles across the political divide. One wonders, how such individual will deal with serious matters pertaining to leading country. Recent reports indicate that a leader of one of the major political parties, allegedly, uttered distasteful words about a minor at a political rally.
