Bottom of Barrel

Submitted by ub on Tue, 03/27/2018 - 09:47

One year in and during holy week, its beginning to look more like holy cow, with a nation appearing to lose faith in itself with increasingly conflicting and misleading statements followed by signs of a sinking ship, which is running out of replacement crewmembers, after choosing the wrong ones, then followed by questionable decisions, allegations of thuggish behavior, cover-ups and the list grows... etc.

US Administrations used to attract qualified public servants, but it feels like we've been scraping the barrel with the applicants being fired, resigning or not interested in jumping into the bottom of the barrel.

The term bottom of the barrel-derived from the historical practice in our early days of storing food in barrels, when supplies ran low, only what was on the very bottom of the barrel remained and had to be removed by scraping.
