Americans Elect

by Jonah Goldberg

As the chuckling has intensified over the group’s apparently total failure, I thought it worth revisiting this 2011 column from Thomas Friedman:

Write it down: Americans Elect. What did to books, what the blogosphere did to newspapers, what the iPod did to music, what did to pharmacies, Americans Elect plans to do to the two-party duopoly that has dominated American political life — remove the barriers to real competition, flatten the incumbents and let the people in. Watch out.
