There used to be an institution called court jester or king’s fool. This person was generally some kind of entertainer, juggler, tumbler and master of the one-line zinger. He acted as the court’s conscience, poking fun at bad decisions and personal shortcoming in people who were so powerful, no one else dared criticize.
There is another old tradition, the village idiot. This person was cared for by general village charity and served an important function in being less capable and competent than everyone else. He made people feel good about themselves even when they didn’t amount to much otherwise.
Since Democrats seem to spend most of their time criticizing their betters and making themselves ridiculous with their scandals and faux pas, I recommend we designate them to fill these important societal functions in our government. But let’s get the balance right. Lots of competent and capable people plus one or two fools and idiots per department. Okay?
