Focussing the mind wonderfully

I love recalls.  Legislators are way too complacent without them.  Legislators should live in either constant fear of their constituents, or serene indifference to staying in office.

Does give it more of an at will employment bit.

On the noon o'clock Fox news today, one of the throats interviewed the leader of the recall effort (which is the second one for this Senator; the first failed for lack of petition signatures). She asked the man "What about democracy? You have an election coming up next fall; in the meantime the people have spoken."

The man replied with words to the effect of "This is democracy in action. We're having an election right away, if enough of us want one. Democracy doesn't need a calendar."
