I think most people tend to be self righteous. If only in not at all being self righteous. :)

It's not a bad thing. It's certainly better than people thinking there are no ideals to live by, or that they may have ideals but they don't let them get in the way of their behavior.

I too am rather disgusted by politics and politicians. Even the ones that I most like let me down. And badly. Maybe the safest politicians to admire are dead ones who have been thoroughly researched.

It's not bad to be interested by political news. But for myself, I find it often leads to feelings of impotence and anger. I don't have enough of a sense that I actually can make a difference, so I prefer not to invest too much of myself in it. I try to educate myself enough to know if there's anything I can do, and to decide which of the two persons running for any election is less corrupt or idiotic, as the case may be.

Involve yourself to the point that it's healthy. But if it's making you feel worse, maybe it's time to step back a bit? There was a time when I got really obsessed by the news. When I didn't have my computer a month, I stepped away from it naturally and I feel far better now.
