Play Place Politics

Maybe America would be a better place if it was run by kids. I know, many of our current politicians act like children, but if we're going to have leaders who act like children, maybe we should have leaders who are children. Think about it for a minute.

I'm sitting at McDonald's eating a Quarter Pounder with Cheese while my son and two other boys he just met whose names he doesn't even know crawl around in Ronald's Play Place like hamsters in a tunnel maze. They're laughing and jumping and running around together! When one comes out of the bottom of the slide, he waits for the others to catching before going back into the tubes. When was the last time you saw Democrats and Republicans do anything together?

Why is it that children so easily befriend each other without even knowing anything about each other? Trust and innocence, is my guess. Maybe that's what's wrong with politicians today. None of them are innocent, and all of them know it, so none of them trust the others.

While I sit here writing this, more children have arrived -- some of the girls -- and the boy children have welcomed them into the fun. I wonder if Congress will welcome their new members as warmly? After all, they're just a bunch of overgrown children.
