I Call This: "A Good Start..."

Nothing quite as stupid and un-helpful as photo-ops in diners and greasy spoon hideaways where candidates try to "relate" to the "average American" by sitting down over eggs and coffee.

Colby’s Breakfast & Lunch in Portsmouth is so sick of White House “wannabes” they’ve put up a sign out front that reads “No Politicians, No Exceptions.” 
“We had some disturbances with politicians coming in and tying up the dining room, slowing down and spreading their agenda and just interrupting our clienteles’ breakfast and disrupting the atmosphere,” a waiter named Andrew told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

Now, my idea is a twist on this pointless exercise. Because none of these candidates have yet to be ELECTED to anything, there's no real chance/point in bringing up your grievances with said politician.

What if we made it MANDATORY that those already ELECTED officials, HAD to have breakfast once a week in a local diner, and pretty much anybody with an issue could come on by and give them an earful?

Now we're talkin'. Of course, once these lizards get elected, their public interaction and direct accountability to voters pretty much disappears.
