Blog Round-Up

Here are the mandatory Wiener-gate posts. On a side note, when is the media going to get more creative with scandal titles? Why must everything end in –gate? From my understanding, a lot of this behavior was on Capitol Hill. I think Weiner-Hill is much more fitting (and possibly appropriate given members’ behavior).

Interesting take on aggregate behaviors accumulated from individual motives.

This guest post on The Monkey Cage is among the growing literature on how to keep “policy losers” (aka. moderates) to vote the party line.

    I like the idea of having a separate suffix for congressional scandals. How about “dome” as in the Capitol dome? So this would be “Weiner-dome.”

    hahaha. Well put. It’s reminiscent of the Teapot Dome scandal, but I think it’s a step in the right direction.
