Here’s a fun little video clip from The Daily Show. A quick intro, from the ATL reader who brought it to our attention:
On a recent episode of The Daily Show, they discussed a proposal, by local politicians in Arizona, to “incentivize” citizens to vote. Under the plan, any citizen who votes would receive a ticket for a lottery, with a grand prize of $1 million. The lottery would be open only to voters: if you don’t vote, you lose out on your chance to win the million bucks.
The Daily Show spoke with Jack Chin, a law professor from the University of Arizona, who argued that such an incentive would be illegal. He has an LLM from Yale (maybe you know him).
Given his East Coast pedigree, you’d think Chin would “play along,” i.e., have a clue as to how an interview with a Daily Show correspondent would go. But Chin was utterly clueless, and correspondent Dan Bakkedahl took this Yalie to town. By the end of the interview, Chin looked completely flustered, and he didn’t quite get that he was being made a mockery of.
We’re a bit surprised that a Yale-trained law prof wasn’t more down with how the Daily Show works. But we’re afraid our reader’s summary of the proceedings is basically accurate. Here’s the clip; you can judge for yourself:
