IF NOTHING ELSE COMES OUT THIS ELECTION:....:

For This I Microwaved Popcorn? (Mark Katz, 10/08/08, The Daily Beast)

Now I understand why Americans are in the habit of electing governors. Put two senators on the national stage and what you get is humdrum political theater. Here are the kinds of sentences you hear when these two legislators go at it:

"I introduced a bill..."

"I wrote a letter..."

"I put out a statement..."

"I've taken on the special interests."

"I've reached across the aisle."

"I voted against an energy bill loaded with goodies."

And lots of stuff about earmarks.


...perhaps we can all agree on a Constitutional Amendment banning legislators from seeking the presidency.
