For the last few days, M. has been moaning and groaning about solutions to our current political state. In my view, the biggest problem is apathy. How do you get people interested in politics? I suppose you could get a bunch of stars together to condemn the second Amendment in order to sway voters; like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64G5FfG2Xpg
Or, you could do something a lil’ more interesting….Gawd……zilla! I’m a genius!! Here’s my solution: A political game show like no other!
Step 1 – The stars will listen to a House or Senate proposal bill.
Step 2 – The stars will then listen to lawmakers opposed to the bill.
Step 3 – The stars will divide based on who they agree with.
Step 4 – The stars will go to D.C. and listen to the arguments for/against the bill. (This is the beauty part, because the stars will be allowed to ask about the pork in the bill, so the ding-dong dummies better have read the damn bill as they will be on national television!)
Step 5 – The stars will make their argument to the American people.
Step 6- After the public’s votes are tallied, the winning stars win a nice trip to exotic Syria paid for by the govt. (A lil’ Kells humour.) Actually, the winning team will have a donation sent to the charity of its choice. The winning orator will win, I don’t know, a date with their favorite congressman/woman?
There are these times when I really just want to kiss myself because I’m so damn clever! Think of it: The stars can try to push their liberal agenda, but they will lose the game. The congressmen will have to be on their toes because now everyone and their brother will be tuned in to CSPAN. The public will be arguing back and forth on the bill, and talking politics will be as common place as talking about who won on American Idol.
If you don’t think my idea rocks then you’re obviously living in a van down by the river. That said, I would love to know how it could be improved upon. I notice on reality shows, they seem to evolve as the season goes on. Also, I haven’t thought of a catchy title yet…….
