Politicians: a genetic mutation?

    Greetings from the Ridge.
    I’ve often read about genetic mutations, those weird accidents that cause the genes of a species to suddenly take off in the wrong direction and we end up with a two-headed frog or a five-legged Hereford calf. But I always thought that genetic freakdom was more rare in the human species. After all, aren’t we inoculated a bit by genetic testing, modern drugs, and plastic surgeons? Then why do I see more and more freaks on my television set?
