I live Here
Charlatan-is the word you may have been looking forA leader she is not. Far from it. The opposite actually. A sort of a village idiot. I dont know the female term that matches it. (So I am stubborn, sue me)
Long ago we had a dem who gathered quite some power for herself decades ago in Maryland. We knew her as Barbara Big Mouth. There is no really need to name her specifically. There is only one.
She had the ability to take something everyone could agree to be true and then apply some kind of whats going to happen in the Legislature to flip it on it's ear. You would see the whole Tavern in hysterics every night when the news trot Barb Big Mouth in tape during the broadcast.
Those days are gone forever. Nothing today is funny at all in the slightest. Its almost deadly serious now.
