The American Two-Party System

Sasha Volokh relates the following joke in a post today:

“See, in our country, we have a two-party system; my party is the Stupid Party, and the other party is the Evil Party. Sometimes my guys are in power and we get a lot of stupid legislation; sometimes the other guys are in power and we get a lot of evil legislation. Sometimes both parties are in power and we get what’s called ‘gridlock,’ where nothing particularly stupid or evil gets done. But occasionally the parties get together in what we call ‘bipartisanship,’ where we pass something that’s both stupid and evil . . . .”
