The Competence Deficit. “The fundamental problem with the Chicago school of ‘we won’ politics is that it so disproportionately rewards the hacks, scoundrels, mediocrities, pitchmen, liars and swindlers who have a talent for conning low-information voters that it eventually delegitimizes itself. It turns itself into a big shambling joke. The final result of this style of power-grabbing is total corruption and total incompetence. ‘We won’ is inevitably followed by ‘now what?’” Why, tee time, of course.
