The myth of the rational politician, dos
So, last night's post title "The myth of the rational politician" still amuses me. I hope it made the point that my unpublished post would have, as well as being a nod to Bryan Caplan's recent Myth of the Rational Voter (which I haven't read yet, but will soon.)
If Lampson were a rational actor, I'd assume he'd run for Senate. So, he's either not rational, or he's calculating that his running for CD22 increases the aggregated percentages for Democrats in the Senate and CD22 races. The latter would fit with what I've observed from Lampson, who's a pretty slick pragmatic politician.
