Is it not possible to be an a successful politician and have poor leadership skills?


If that's the case, then you're inept at being one, which is the entire point, right?

But no, nothing's impossible, I suppose. However, I still think a good politician is a good leader, and a bad politician is a bad leader.

I don't know what goes on in the entirety of politics, but I'm not sure how someone can be a bad leader and a good politician.

He said "successful," not "good." There are plenty of politicians who have been in office for long periods of time who suck ass. Look at George Bush, Jr. for a recent and obvious example.

^^Well, you know, the fact that the church is so stuck in its ways is a major reason I deconverted. It's quite clear these guys don't speak for some infinitely wise being, but keep sticking to tradition even when doing so seems stupid.

So yes, i do expect too much from the church. I hold no punches with an organization that claims to represent God.


Wait, were you Catholic?

And success and being "inept" are not mutually exclusive.

Can you say anything to refute me?

The obvious fact that makes your statement so unbelievably stupid is that half of all people are women. Ergo, it's impossible for men to "out breed" women. This should be ****ing obvious.

Minor pet peeve: George W Bush is NOT "jr". His father's name differs.
