New Rule: If we stop treating politicians like the celebrities they’re not, maybe then they’ll act like responsible people we trust to represent us, instead of the celebrities they’re not.

It’s my observation that the country as a whole has a serious case of what can best be termed American Attention Deficit Disorder – (AADD).  A really good example of how this works is actually occurring right now in the Congress. The Rs captured the lower house in the 2010 […]
