Quote of the Day

From Digby via Atrios:
Maybe we should start educating people to see politicians the way they see athletes. They certainly may have lots of opinions about what a team should do. But even the most egotistical drunk screaming obscenities from the stands doesn't truly believe that he's a better hitter than Manny Ramirez or that the team should hire a bunch of guys off the streets to play in the outfield. They have more respect for the game than that. It would be nice if citizenship required as much respect for the country.

but sports aren't based on a democracy, no? the entire idea of our system of government is that the people are supposed to dictate what the gov't can and cannot do. sports as a spectator event obviously doesn't operate the same way. sorry atrios, but you're off on this one.
