#4 The Primitive, albeit heavily furred creature makes a good point..... The National Train Set..... would be something we can all agree on.
The Rethuglicans want an O Gauge layout, handbuilt using nickel chromium steel tracks, with serious ballast. Only qualified cranks will be allowed to make it go.... The Donks want everymans layout, based on HO scale, with a shit load of cars and stuff and all and cost way the hell more than you would have thought considering everything. Everyone gets to play with it, but it only works 3 weeks every four years before election day. Still it looks good, and it has that going for it. Unless the Chineese kitteh sits on the track and then everything goes to hell in a high speed hopper.
