Same Qualifications For The Job

Yesterday on Triple J they were talking about Pauline Hanson dropping politics as a vocation and becoming a realtor. The job description is surpisingly similar. She obviously has the skillset of lying or bending the truth gained from her time in politics and could put that to good use in selling real estate. I put my mind to it and came up with another pair of jobs that would require a similar description.

Fortune tellers and weathermen:

-Don't need to know they are predicting (keep it vague)
-Eventually their predictions will be right because they are so vague and it isn't that difficult to jag it and their credibility will be restored
-Have to be a bit zany to survive in the industry
-Just need to act confidently for the gullible public to believe them

You are being too hard on Pauline. They say the girl can realy dance. I don't always agree with her views or her ideas about how to implement them, but no-one deserved to be incarcerated on trumped up charges, or threated the way she was in jail!
