Bickering politicians turn into puppets

1:00 PM ET Mon, 14 Oct 2013

Over the past two weeks the government shutdown sparked lots finger-pointing on both sides of the aisle. From refusing to speak to each other to a senator who recited passages from Dr. Suess, the childlike arguing made our nation's elected officials sound a lot like bickering children on a playground. When you hear what came out of their mouths edited into a playground full of politicians played by puppets, it would be funny if it wasn't so infuriating. After all, we pay these guys to run our country.
