World's Leaders Get Loopy!

The world's top leaders get a bit loopy sometimes! Witness Russia's Vladimir Putin kissing a small boy's stomach! Hmmm...yeah Vlad, whatever you say.
Then there's G.W.'s mugging as a German baby howls when the infant is handed to him. That kid is a good judge of character.
Jacques Chirac is his continental suave self as he French kisses the hand of the First Lady.
Best of all is Japan's Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi at Graceland emulating his idol, Elvis Pressley.

Dicky: Sadly, as the world's leaders go loopy, they are taking the rest of us with 'em.

I hope everyone who is interested in history and the founding of our government will at one time or another read The Federalist Papers.
It can be tedious going but is well worth the effort.
In one of the essays, I don't remember which, the writer suggests that,to paraphrase here,"The voters of the new government should look amongst themselves and select candidates to run for office that represent the very best and most able members of society." Boy are we a far cry from that! Of course parties were something just in the embryonic stage then and media consisted of handbills and infrequently printed and slowly distributed newspapers.
Also voters were limited to white, adult, property owning males.
