Fusion voting, gnostocracy

It looks like a busy week. Here are a couple of quick links:

-- Bruce Bartlett on how "fusion voting" could give third parties some sway. It strikes me as an attractive proposition at a time when a third party plausibly could be less ideologically extreme than the first two.

-- Walter Russell Mead on how efforts against climate change represent "gnostocracy," or rule by experts, which he dismisses. But aren't there some subjects about which the experts genuinely know much more than the general public?
