Rotten Apples

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Douglas V. Gibbs

There is an old saying, “One rotten apple spoils the bunch.”  This comes from a time when apples were stored in barrels, and surely if only one was rotten, it wouldn’t be long before the entire barrel was rotten to the core and needed to be thrown out.

The same thing happens in politics.  Once a rotten politician enters the room, it ruins the bunch.  However, the difference between apples and politicians is that if exposed to rot, a politician can be turned around and become less rotten.

Lyndsey Graham is a great example.

As long as John McCain was around, and the two were hanging out together, Graham was nearly as rotten as ol’ no name.  Once the former POW met his demise, something miraculous happened to Lyndsey.  He suddenly began to move towards conservatism, he began to make a little sense when he spoke, he suddenly became a champion for our president, and he grew a pair in the department of testicular fortitude.

Is it possible that deep down the rotten apple had a golden core?

McCain was hardly a republican, and to be honest, I always thought the maverick rode in the wrong party.  Sometimes, I thought the same of Graham, as well.

It’s amazing that while in politics one rotten apple can ruin the bunch, a departure of that rotten apple can actually have a healing effect that not only chases away rot, but can actually polish an apple bright red.
