Politics: "To Serve the Public...It's a cookbook!"

Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.) has been thoroughly pilloried in the blogosphere for his over-the-top reaction to a pair of camera-wielding reporters. Heck, even in the HuffPo, the condemnation has been swift and sure.

But it shouldn't be a one-shot deal. Every politican, whatever their party or positions, should be subject to this kind of constant, public questioning. Polite, honest, but relentless questioning. You wanna be part of the 535-member group that makes laws for 300 million people? Get used to random reporters and gossip-hounds bugging you at town hall meetings, on the street, at restaurants, in grocery stores. Maybe then we wouldn't have Congresscritters "serving" us for such extended terms.

It shouldn't be hard to fix. We already have paparazzi hounding Miley Cyrus everywhere she goes, after all.
