| | US Congress and CSPAN
Just curious about the opinions of the rest of you on CSPANs effect on the politicians.
Anytime I watch Congress or the Senate on CSPAN, I can't believe what I see. Very rarely have I ever seen a congressman or senator speak their mind. They talk AT each other instead of WITH each other. Half they time the two sides act as if they are the other doesn't exist and just carry on with the script as if it is some kind of play. They come to the floor to cast their votes and everything else is just a show. There is the ocassional odd ball that flips out, but otherwise....
Also think it's funny that when they say "My friend on the other side" it often sounds more like "That asshole over there"
