"I'd like to buy a W, T, and an F please, Pat."
That's TPM's reaction to ("Wheel of Fortune host) Pat Sajak's National Review Online post asking whether "state workers be able to vote in state elections on matters that would benefit them directly? The same question goes for federal workers in federal elections." Such talk is not new, and I trace some of its history in my 2005 Washington and Lee piece. It discusses some related comments by Jonah Goldberg.
