And Another Thing


The Bad News Bears Go To Washington

Remember David Pollock, the kid who played the cerebral Bad News Bear, Rudi Stein?

OK, so probably you don't. But he's running for Congress out of California. Got an idea compromise might be a better idea than what's currently going on there, which is basically the parties engaging in a giant you-know-whatting match while helping various fat cats loot what's left of the middle class.

I wish Pollock luck, though he might want to ask President Obama how the compromise thing worked out for him. I also look forward to his campaign manager, Englebert, becoming enmeshed in a scandal involving bootleg chocolate bars.

Oh, and to his chief of security, Tanner Boyle, biting Michele Bachmann on the leg.

One can only hope.
