In Praise Of Government Gridlock
David Harsanyi, in reason, hopes we get a special gift in November -- government gridlock. He makes the case for divided government:
There is no greater check on power in Washington than two strong political parties.
...Washington is stocked with folks who possess the extraordinary gift of believing that they have the ability to manage and organize complex economic systems--and our behavior in them.
The one thing that they won't accept is that businesses, consumers and citizens can "figure it out for themselves."
We need gridlock to help them. And us.
