Soccer Politics: My Favorite Republican

Watching the way Horacio Elizondo, the Argentinean referee, boldly reacted to Zidane's head-butt, resolutely showing him a red card and ejecting him from the game, made me think about how great it would be if we had the political equivalent of a red card --something we could flash for campaign fouls and astonishing acts of bad political behavior that would immediately remove the perpetrators from the political pitch.

OK, so I will share with you my Political Godmother Arianna Huffington's blog. For you who are fans of Bill Maher's show Politically Incorrect and (when that became too hot for national television, he later moved to an even better show) HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher you'd know Huffington, a lady with a presence you can't ignore, the most liberal-conservative political figure who does not articulate anything but well thought out opinions that reflect her solid principles, and even if you don't agree with her, you can't help but respect her. Arianna is the epitome of democratic dialogue, wish we had her in our majlis.

Don't know if we could remove corrupt, political perpetrators by flashing red cards, even countries with Watch-Dogs still have corrupt elements in their political system. This idea is some food for thought for Kuwaiti youth.
