Timeshare Congressman

Bringing democracy back to the little guy
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

Everyone knows that politicians are in the pocket of big business - isn't it about time that the guy on the street got a look in? We've all heard of Warhol's 'fifteen minutes of fame' here's your chance for fifteen minutes of democratic representation.

       What price democracy? I'd figure about $3000 for fifteen minutes, but I see your point, maybe we'd have to put a number of congressmen/women into a lottery for the average voter who doesn't want to anti-up.
