Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

More Mann And Ornstein

As usual, spot on.  I especially like the idea of turning the election into a lottery, where you get a receipt and that's you ticket for a, say, $50M prize.  Their point about mandating (or at least dramatically improving) voter turnout would likely decrease extreme partisanship founded on turning out the base.

Interesting piece.
