The de-evolution of professionalism

Evidence of the de-evolution of the standards of professionalism are everywhere. It’s in the Secret Service and Marine Corps prostitution scandals, it’s in the tax problems of the Treasury Secretary and staffers in the White House, and it’s in a President who has turned Air Force One into a political tool for fundraising. It’s also in the non-stop, taxpayer-fueled mooching of the First Lady. It’s in the TSA. It’s in the EPA.

And the media. Oy!

But it all starts somewhere and I’ll offer it begins with the de-evolution of the professional standards of the President.

We could pick any number of presidential patient zeros, but for fun, let’s just start with LBJ’s welfare state, head off to Dick Nixon’s inept plumbers, examine Jimmy Carter’s blue jean White House, consider candidate Clinton blowing sax, and stop at the other day’s Barry Oh! slow-jamming on the Jimmy Fallon-Gong show as in integral part of the script (and probably contra to his intent, ending up as the butt of the joke).

Where does it end? In Idiocracy.

De-professionalism, de-evolution, or Future world?

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
