Will a Miss America contestant, a liberal blogger, and a conservative senatorial staffer successfully re-write the Constitution and resolve partisan politics?  Worth a shot, right?  Lauren Gunderson is at it again with an outrageous political farce with laughs for both sides of the aisle. Two political rivals, a beauty queen, and a kidnapping.  American politics just got delightfully absurd.
