come on now guys, you like to live in a fantasy world.
for only $100 a term you too can pick and assemble your own congress, supreme court, cabinet and yes even the chief executive.
cherry pick your team and send them in to veto, vote, vacation and filibuster.
tally up scores on yeahs, nays and attendance. count how many trips home, away and abroad.
can they remain scandal free and for how long?
yes, you play fantasy everything else; know the dna of every prtofessional and collegiate athelete, why not try knowing and following the careers of your elected politicians.
it's fun, it's entertaining, it's our government in-action.

Sounds like fun. I'll start by removing Obama, Dingy Harry, and Botox Pelosi from my team.

in all seriousness; it's obvious that americans in genral and men in particular are so steeped in professional atheletecism that they devote most of the waking hours thinking about it, leaving pundits, opinionators, and other such ilk to become surragate decision makers for them.
as long as men remain boys the government will remain impotent and irrelevant.
