Have you ever seen the British Question Hour? They put Tony Blair in front of the house of commons and they ask him questions on TV. He usually has a binder full of notes with him and he has to respond right there, right then. No where to hide, no where to run. They are on a regularly scheduled basis so there’s no avoiding them. The house of commons often boo’s, sometimes applauds, both the questions and the answers. Quite entertaining even if the politics isn’t directly applicable to anyone in the US for the most part. That might provide some improvement in the current situation. Entertainment at least.
