A modest proposal:
Be it enacted that henceforth all politicians, of whatever sex or political party, shall be required to be polygamists. They will be attended during each campaign trip or state visit by at least one spouse. There will be no exceptions.
With this modest lifestyle revision, politicians will perform a great service to the country they may claim to serve: No longer will their sexual peccadilloes be a serious or, as is often the case, the central topic of their adventures. Instead, they can focus (assuming they have any wit or capacity in the first place) on the needs of the nation and voters may be encouraged to think ... instead of wringing their hands in an immodestly moral despair. And news organizations may find time to report news...if they remember how.
Vote yes for the polygamy statute!
