Dr. House As a Way to Explain American Politics

If you were a House, MD fan, you probably watched the series finale this week. Having worked in healthcare for over 30 years, I admit I did see some personality traits with which I have been familiar. However, that’s not my point.

Imagine, if you will, politicians with the personality of Gregory House, MD. Congressional debates might sound something like this:

“I want to propose this bill.”

“You’re a moron!”

“You’re trying to tax and spend!”

“You’re giving everything to the rich!”

“You’re stupid.”

“You’re lying!”

“Everybody lies. You’re a moron!”

“Oh yeah? You’re not very interesting!”

“That’s because you’re a moron!”

Thank goodness our politicians don’t act that way. If they did we’d never get anything done.
