Once Again, Huh

So the same people (coughleftistsstillupsetabout2000cough) who want to go around the Electoral College are against proposals to legally change the Electoral College vote-allocation procedure (tip to Instapundit)? To one already in use? Huh.

If changing the system is "partisan" why isn't keeping the system as is also "partisan."

Mind you, I like the Electoral College. I think state-level winner-take-all reduces the incentive to cheat and reduces the effect of cheating. Win by enough (and at the state level, really close results aren't that common) and a little cheating doesn't affect the electoral vote, right?

The huffing and puffing and "have you no decency" reaction is what gets me.
