Don’t mess with The Dodd

Don’t mess with The Dodd:

What’s amazing is the notion that we may actually be doing something about it. As Matt Yglesias wrote, public engagement matters: “SOPA/PIPA opponents actually got in the arena and did politics instead of complaining about how this showed that politics is corrupt and stupid.” The problem with our political system isn’t that it’s unresponsive—it’s that it’s usually responding to the wrong things. But if we let that be a rationale to just write the whole thing off as a lost cause, then we’re doing what the real cynics in the system—like, for example, former senator Chris Dodd—want us to: nothing.

[He does seem to have completely lost his way, assuming I ever knew about him to think that he was useful in the first place.]
