My wife has a guilty pleasure. She calls it train wreck television and it features things like obnoxious nannies and housewives of various municipalities and other persons neither she nor I could tolerate for five minutes in person. My guilty pleasure seems to be traIn wreck politics. And I have to say nobody does it better than our American cousins.

And when the 'Baggers don't get their Social Security checks they'll probably blame the President.
