I’m tired of outraged politicians. Just as an example, read this  report of the proceedings in the Rajya Sabha in the wake of the outrageous rape in Mumbai, cutting across party lines.

Will you all just shut up?

Politicians, please stop your bullshit. Nobody believes it any more. AP

All you politicians, self-serving and sanctimonious, cannot pass the Lokpal Bill. You do not care about judicial reforms. Police reform is lip service for you.

And you want us to believe that you care about the rape of a woman in Mumbai?

You don’t — and by now, all of us, voters, know you don’t care.
You care about yourselves, that’s it. The only thing that matters to you is that you get elected (or-re-elected).

At the most local level, you harangue, bully and threaten the police force to do your bidding, asking them to protect your party workers and those close to your party workers who break the law.

You harangue, bully, and threaten the judiciary to do your bidding, asking them to protect your party workers and those close to your party workers who break the law.

You harangue, bully, and threaten the judiciary to do your bidding, asking them to protect your party workers and those close to your party workers who break the law.

You harangue, bully, and threaten the IB and the CBI to do your bidding, asking them to protect your party workers and those close to your party workers who break the law.

You harangue, bully, and threaten the media to do project tour point of view and to protect your party workers and those close to your party workers who break the law.

And now, we’re tired of this rubbish. Start doing what you’ve been elected to do: run the country so that every citizen’s rights are protected. And that includes the right to live, the right not to be raped.

All of you, stop your public pronouncements and your pontificating and govern. Govern well.

All of you. The Congress. The BJP. And every other political party in the land.

Please stop your bullshit. Nobody believes it any more. In fact, nobody listens to it any more.
