Here's a brief blog post with a nifty title: Rational Inattention to Politics. This is not a new idea -- it's been outlined and discussed and formulated by scholars for decades (see Downs, for example, back in 1957). But it deserves a shout-out, especially on a day when I'm pressed to keep up with the readings in the Public Opinion seminar I teach in three hours. In other words, this pretty much sums up my blog for the day. Sorry.
