Can we analogize different major sports leagues to different branches of the federal government? Yes we can! Presidential politics is like the star-driven NBA while congress is the NFL and the judiciary is MLB. It’s surprisingly plausible. And I’ll extend — state government is like MLS with people occasionally telling themselves they’ll pay attention and then ignoring it. The NHL, of course, is Canadian parliamentary politics.
