Recommended Readings

First go to The Atlantic and read Jonathan Rauch's piece on "How American Politics Went Insane," where he makes a pretty compelling case for where the rot currently eating our politics from the inside started.

Then jump over to New York magazine and read Jonathan Chait's rebuttal to Rauch, where he makes the case that this isn't a "pox on both their houses" situation. Gotta be honest, while I think Rauch raises some good points, I think I'm coming down on Chait's side of this one.
