Every year, politics reaches its lowest energy levels in August. This is the month when politicians and political operatives go on holiday, taking a break from the stress of the political sphere.
While taking holiday is essential for your health and well-being, sometimes politicians and political operatives won’t be able to fully turn off, that’s just an unfortunate features of this profession. In fact, the people that politics often needs are those ones who cannot completely turn off, even during their holiday. Just like a surgeon can be called in for emergencies anytime, political operatives need to be ready to jump back into the world of political scandals whenever needed, even in August!
