Fantasy elections

Politics and elections. What a ridiculous mess.

It wouldn't be so bad if elections were like sports.

Let the fans cheer, scream, hate, and obsess, while the rest of us ignore them and aren't affected in any real way by their silliness. Let all results be binding only to those who choose to participate in the circus. The rest of us can ignore it all and not be in any danger for having better things to pay attention to.

For that matter, don't they have "fantasy sports"? All politics should be moved into the fantasy realm where the rest of us can forget it even exists.
