Maybe as Americans were too serious about our politics. Maybe, like sport, we take sides too easily and no longer see the greater good of the game. Maybe we take our politicians too seriously and hold them to a standard much higher than we would hold ourselves.
Or maybe, just maybe, the entire political system has finally fallen off the edge of the universe.
There's a man named Bob Inglis who is running for Congress in the fine and serious state of South Carolina.
If you turn up your speakers and click on this link you'll discover how serious we really are here.
And this man wants to be my Congressman.
Now, you may say, "Well he's just a wild card candidate. Al Sharpton without the fancy turning of phrase."
Actually, this man has already been elected before. He'd likely still be in office if he hadn't term limited himself back in the 90s.
What's funnier? He's actually got a shot at winning this year.
