Tom Hanks character "Forrest Gump" had a truly memorable line: "Stupid is as stupid does."
Forrest was often thought of as being stupid for his lack of "intelligence." But what he lacked in
intelligence, he excelled in common sense, heroism, and fidelity. Forrest Gump inspired us to do good; to do what is right and not expedient; to stick by your friends until the bitter end.
That kind of leadership and thinking IS NOT what is prevalent in our nation's capital.
