Dog Training for politicians
Posted by Jill | 9:08 AM
It's been demonstrated many times that positive reinforcement is a training method that works. It works with dogs, who seek praise from the human alpha of their pack. It works with children. It works with employees, who sometimes just want to know that they aren't just drones.

So why not do it with politicians and government officials? By all means, let's show them when we disapprove, but let's also give credit where credit is due. Chris Christie is still a misogynistic bully who's going to ruin the state of New Jersey, but with conservatism being so characterized by anti-Muslim bigotry, he puts the "guts" that make a thrill go up the leg of television pundits to good use:
