I like superhero movies just as much as the next person. Ok, maybe more than the next person.

No, I’m not expecting Barney Frank to turn into a monstrous green Hulk anytime soon, or for John Boehner to walk into the House wearing red, white, and blue spandex.

If our all of our politicians acted like Avengers, perhaps the world would be a little brighter.
