The World's Greatest Deliberatve Body Goes Post-Modern

With a few million providential lucky breaks, the 112th Congress of the United States which will convene in January, 2011 will contain two new members: Chris Matthews (D-Pa.) and Hank Williams Jr. (R-Tenn.). If nothing else, this will give tourists in Washington something to do besides trudge to the Smithsonian. Also, Brian Lamb will see ratings for C-Span quintuple.

Alas, the voters of neither of these fine states are likely to be as into dark humor as yours truly. The proposed Williams and Matthews campaigns do, however, provide an opportunity for aspiring young men and women on the make who have some facility with the English language.

Young hustlers, show up at either man's doorstep and volunteer your services. Eat peanut butter, sleep on the office floor for six months to a year-AND KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN.

Go back to computer, write diligently, and presto, you have a best-seller on your hands. And while you are unlikely to ever sing the new theme song for Monday Night Football, a long career as a cable news talking head awaits.
