Chris Hayes Cometh
Progressive journalism's preeminent e-mailer Chris Hayes has taken to the blogosphere to peddle his irritatingly impressive brand of commentatarizin'. This is a good thing for you all, but a bad thing for those of us who are about to be rendered obsolete. In any case, one of his first posts takes on Mickey Kaus's assertion that card check legislation would "[subject] non-union workers to thuggish peer pressure," a state of affairs vastly worse than thuggish employer pressure, of course...
Kill this meme. Kill it now.

Why wouldn't a PROMPT (say, within a week), low-threshold (say, 5% of workers signing cards) be even better.
Certainly, worker thuggishness isn't a problem NOW--but it has been in the past, and could well be again--so why not structure the system to avoid it?
(These are real questions--I know my history better than my present affairs on this one.)
And I still think that bringing back secondary strikes would help more than any change to the election system.
