Damien Sullivan, he of the rapidly-mutating transcendental handle, wrote
.... I'd be happy to try a random Congress, or at least a random
California legislature. (The latter is probably far more feasible,
with popular initiatives.)

Fat chance! Some appeals court would rule that it thwarts the sacred
right of the people to elect whom they choose. (As if the ballot access
rules don't - but that's for another day.)
