I need a drug test to stock shelves, what about elected officials?

Why is it that in order to get even a menial job doing manual labor, an employer needs to pull a credit report, verify references, do a drug test, and even in some cases assess my mental health and capacity? I think that before primary elections are held, candidates should undergo rigorous screenings that include drug tests, IQ tests, personality tests, background checks, posting of college transcripts, and the verification of personal and professional references. All this data should be shared with the public to allow them to make an informed choice.

       Where do you live that the media doesn't try to dig up dirt on the candidates?

       I suspect that dropping a urine for an employment drug screen is a bit like submitting to the hernia grope test, once you've done it you can forget about that political future to which you may aspire.   

       Careers not otherwise noted would be unaccommodating of such a lickspittle.
