    First fight I’d be hoping for mutually assured destruction.

    The fault lies not in our (political) stars, but in ourselves.

    What generally happens to politicians who tell voters what they don’t want to hear?

    South Park is to satire what McDonald’s is to cuisine.

    The electoral college isn’t the problem. The electorate is the problem—an electorate that tailors the facts to suit its attitudes, has fallen in love with ideological purity tests (and Wiley, I am looking directly at you on this one), doesn’t really look at the big picture much, and thinks there’s no real difference between Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas. Scrapping the electoral college is just treating a symptom; the underlying disease remains the same.

    And let us be clear, here. This is exactly the same system the elected Obama twice, that elected Bill Clinton twice (the first time when he didn’t achieve a majority in the popular vote), elected Reagan twice, and elected Nixon twice. No matter where you are on the ideological graph, the system has worked in your favor at least five times since I’ve been alive. To call it broken now when it works against you isn’t quite the height of hypocrisy—Trump’s pledge to drain the swamp and then turning around and filling his cabinet with swamp critters has to take that title—but it’s at least in the top fifteen.

    The plain and simple fact is that it is impossible to create a system that won’t screw over somebody. The only difference is who gets screwed.

    Discard the electoral college in favor of a national popular vote and you disenfranchise the smaller states. No one’s going to give a fat damn about New Hampshire when New York’s Nassau County alone has more people. No one’s going to bother with Nevada when the Los Angeles metropolitan area is a bigger media market.

    He came close to securing the Republican nomination in 1976—what season was the MASH episode?

    Yeah, fantasy buffs might consider Santa’s elves more similar to gnomes, really..Agreed.
