Republican Mike McFadden, running for Minnesota's U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Al Franken, ignored the old W.C. Fields advice about never working with dogs or kids.
He has the players of his junior football team — or somebody's players, as they look like they come straight from Central Casting — delivering the message about how he taught them their skills but Congress is fumbling its job.
