An underground electric fence?

The Rand Paul clusterf*ck continues. Is this man not familiar with the concept of grounding? Now, I'm no electrical engineer, but I've taken a few courses in physics, and I think there's a reason why this idea hasn't been explored as yet. At least a couple.

I don't think he's a bad guy, really, but he is so clearly not ready for prime time.

Problem: I have lots of opinions on politics and culture that I need to vent. If I do not do this I will wind up muttering to myself, and that's only like one or two steps away from being a hobo. Solution: I write two blogs. A political blog that has some evident sympathies (pro-Obama, mostly liberal though I dissent on some issues, like guns and trade) and a culture blog that does, well, cultural essays in a more long-form manner. My particular thing is taking overrated things (movies, mostly, but other things too) down a peg and putting underrated things up a peg. I'm sort of the court of last resort, and I tend to focus on more obscure cultural phenomena.
