Political Science Hires A Lobbyist: Can Rational Actor Models Permit This?
Posted by David Zaring
Given some recent unpleasantness over federal grant funding, it won't surprise everyone that the American Political Science Association has hired a Washington lobbyist.  But you have to wonder if it shouldn't surprise the class of people who think that advertising and get-out-the-vote ground games don't really matter, that campaign strategy doesn't make a difference, and that public interest groups can only exert a fleeting, at best, influence on public policy.  Assuming that APSA isn't enacting some sort of Judith Butlerian performance, you have to think that it is hoping to shape some consciousnesses in Washington.  We can only hope that's okay with the tit-for-tat portion of its membership.
