Pass the popcorn

Professor Larry Sabato on what happens if the electoral college is tied, throwing the contest to the House.

Summary: it's going to be a rannygazoo bigger than a three-ring circus featuring Siamese elephants joined at the trunk and a three-legged ringmaster. And an international embarrassment.

I don't get that last. What in the world is embarrassing about a representative democracy operating according to the rules? Okay, yes, turmoil, dreaded turmoil. But that's part of the fun and a result of the system being what it is.

Loosen up, Prof, get the popcorn out and enjoy the show.
