Politics and elections in the States have devolved into a game of Liar's Poker where the media are the coaches, call the play-by-play from the booth, report the final scores and serve as the Monday morning armchair quarterbacks. Oh, if only we could vote "NBC for president."
It's also a shame that Yahoo! has seen fit to change the format (again) on these message boards. I do not see that this is in any way an improvement.
