"The "Burning Times 'Awards',
Normally given to politicians
who violate the 1st Amendment"

This sample of the article should spark your interest:

We have issued three awards to date:

Governor Mike Johanns (R, NE):
On 1999-MAY-6, he signed a proclamation officially recognizing March for Jesus Day: Carole Shields, president of People for the American Way Foundation commented that: "This action, far from promoting religious faith and freedom, would undermine it by creating a second-class status for all faiths other than Christianity in Nebraska."

Reporters asked Governor Johanns whether he would sign a proclamation for a religion other than Christianity. He replied: "I wouldn't hesitate to sign a proclamation for the Jewish faith, Hinduism, whatever....so long as it doesn't require me to sign something I personally don't agree with." Full details are available.

The Democrats are no better. Neither party is worth a hill of beans. It is more important to follow the party line than to do what is right for this country. Come election time far too often it is voting for the lesser of two evils.

To me, politics is about the same as sports. Everyone arbitratily picks a team and hates the other side with irrational zeal. Who wins has more to do with scoring points than philosophy, policy or character. Also, they are both expansive money making industries whose key players receive inproportionate compensation versus the value they bring to society.

Except sports are more fun to watch with beer.

Actaully poilitics is a lot more exciting than sports team

Alittle FYI any one choosing a p[arty or a cnadidate with out knowing the what he or she supports is a fool in my opinion.

politics is better than reality show. Better than any sitcom or drama.

in politics you have it all.. The best part is that we as AMericans get to shape those cast of characters.

my politics is arbitrary it is something that is thought out and considered.

Do I expect my candidate do every thing he or she promised?

I would be surprised. Shocked really of that were to happen.

What I expect is that the candidate withe best plan will be working to get most of what he or she promised implemented.

Maybe not in the same shape as was said on the campaign trail. But at least a facsimile. At the very least show he pr she did to try and get something accomplished.

Yes, there are thieves and adulterers. As well as hypocrites that proclaim that while being against something is caught indulging in that very same thing.

At time there is comedy of a candidate or incumbent saying something that he or she should have had a little closer control over the mouth.

Far from being boring as watching grass grow it can be exciting and as today has shown even historic. Regardless of being for it or against it.

It is in the end all in how you approach something that we as a people can affect by simply "pulling a lever" and voting.

I had a bit on my mind. I should have said 'fans of' instead of 'everybody'. But some people do treat it like a reality show or sports game. And many if not all politicians play to these mindsets. Those that don't maybe get as far as local politics, if anything.

Of course, which is more entertaining is subjective to the individual.\

A prior boyfriend and still good friend is a local political journalist, so I am all to aware of the good and bad. My point was not to go into a lengthy analysis of the pros and cons, just to make one comparison. He knows how much the antics turn alot of people off and he is commendable in my opinion for wading through the muck and bringing out the salient and comprehensible points- most especially the ones we might miss for all the drama and pathos screening the actual ramifications to us in everyday life.
