what's your fantasy?

As posted on my community bulletin board - with a little editing...

"For the pathologically hard core political junkies there is Fantasy Congress. To those of you who either lack exposure to Fantasy Baseball (and other sports) or don't really care that the last bill successfully passed and signed into law by the 109th Congress was entitled 'To reauthorize the Livestock Mandatory Reporting Act of 1999 and to amend the swine reporting provisions of that Act.' this may seem like a really weird pastime.

The point of the game is to guess which legislators will submit the most successful legislation. There isn't really any ideological or moral value judgement on the results. So if you pick a congressman who successfully submits legislation to tax elderly widows to provide tax breaks for Exxon and Halliburton, you'll pick up points. Alternatively if one of your chosen legislators shepherds a bill through mandating marijuana use, you'll rack up the points also.

The 110th Congress opens January 3rd!"

When is someone going to come up with Fantasy Celebrity? Chose your roster of celebutaunts, waifs, cocaine snorting supermodels, alien religious folks, recent divorcees, the other woman, and general hollywood types with overactive PR teams. Whoever gets the most gossip rag coverage in week wins! I might seriously play that.

there is, in fact, fantasy celebrity or something like it. you build a team and win based on how often they are in the "news" or some sort of media.
