    I've never said ALEC's proposal is worthwhile.  My only point has been that direct election of Senators is not the only way to go, and that letting the states decide how to appoint or elect their own representatives in Congress has some conceptual merit.

    Obviously we'd need some sort of restrictions in order to prevent the corruption we saw before the Seventeenth Amendment was enacted.
