Are politicians smart?

During a visit to an asylum, a visiting politician asked the asylum director what the criteria were which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalised.

"Well," said the director, "we fill up a bath and then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bath."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal, rational person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"Not quite," replied the director. "A normal, rational person would just pull the plug... now, do you want a bed near the window?"
