    No. It's more frustrating to me.

    I wouldn't say it's entertaining. I suppose if I were into heavy masochism it would be entertaining...

    I think I would call it frustrating, maddening, gut wrenching, etc...

    "Adicting" might be a better word.

    It's not like we come here (to a political site) for no reason.

    Discussing/debating/flaming about politics is entertaining. Politics itself is too important to think of in terms of entertainment.

    It is entertaining discussing it and speaking my mind on certain issues and it is sometimes entertaining listening to radio talk show host. As for watching state of the union addresses, C-span, local city council meetings and other stuff is completely boring.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Absolutely, it's like a fine art to master.

    I love it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Its interesting and at times entertaining, and at other times frustrating as hell. Personally I come here not to win any argument, but to just share ideas and force myself to think and research a little more critically each time.

    O and 'thanks' feed my ego.
