Lock up the women and children. Congress is in session and the Senate Judiciary Gang is advisin' and consentin' up a storm. In reaction, Professor Glenn Reynolds is proposing the repeal of the 17th Amendment. I don't know if I'm for repeal or not, but I'm not dead set against it.
Mostly, I think I just like thinking about how this would set off the tools who yelp about the electoral college without a clue about what is really going on, except for the political slogans so thoughtfully supplied by their handlers.
You know, when you consider politics as a circus performed solely for your amusement and diversion, it's not quite so bad. It's only if you think what politicians do might be important that revulsion sets in.
