65. That's a meaningless response -- Not everyone is cut out to be a politician
That's one of those knee-jerk responses that is so prevalent here. "Then YOU run for office" or its close variation "Why don't you do something about it instead of complaining on a message board."

Being a politician is a particular skill set -- not everyone has it. (For example, if you want a Republican elected, just put me on the ballot to run against them.)

And the assumption that writing on a message board precludes doing anything else is another snarky fallacy.
