Apparently the House Republicans have unveiled an online megaphone to give Americans a voice in Washington. Much like the final episode of Lost, I’m not sure what I think about it yet.
While I like the idea of Americans having a voice in Washington, I think this online megaphone thingie is a little too subtle. I want a real megaphone.
Better yet, I think Americans should be allowed to walk around Washington with a pointy stick. Much like a livestock show, we could walk around with our elected leaders, and when they get out of line, we poke them with a pointy stick.
Hmmm, no, you could put an eye out with a pointy stick. Can’t have a bunch of blind politicians writing laws. The bills being passed now by politicians with sight are bad enough. No, that just won’t do. I have a better idea! A hotshot!
It would work something like this:
I think we should bail out *BZZZZT* Ahhhh, no more bailouts!
They are just here doing the jobs *BZZZZT* Ahhhhh, they’re criminals!
The Arizona law is raci…*BZZZT* Ahhh, it’s a great idea to enforce laws that are already on the books!
I think I’ll go to the deli for lunch *BZZZZT* Ahhh, what was that for?
It would be great. There would be a real and immediate consequence for ignoring the will of the people. It would also be fun for us. Eventually, the politards would be so well-trained you wouldn’t have to actually use the hotshot. You could just make the *BZZZT* noise, and they would all jump to.
Finally we would have elected leaders subservient to the people who elected them. Now there’s a novel concept.
