Paul Niemann of St. Louis, who created last year's highly successful card game entitled &uot;IMPEACHMENT impeachment, formal accusation issued by a legislature against a public official charged with crime or other serious misconduct. In a looser sense the term is sometimes applied also to the trial by the legislature that may follow. .&uot; Niemann created &uot;Bloopers &Blunders&uot; on the notion that truth is often funnier than fiction and says that, &uot;Everybody who's seen this remarks on how funny the cartoons are.&uot; Details of the game can be found on the Internet at www.PoliticalGames.com.
While not claiming to be an expert on politics, Niemann uses humor to hold politicians accountable when they do something foolish. And that is inevitable, he says. For example, the game pokes fun at Al Gore's claim that he invented the Internet. &uot;If Mr. Gore ever sees that card, he'll wish he never took credit for inventing the Internet in the first place,&uot; Niemann says.
