That's a good point; perhaps it would work though if somehow that negative
effect was mitigated?  For instance, restrict election speech and reporting,
if you could somehow make that not backfire or fail, or use a radically
different constituent to representative ratio (say, 10,000:1), so that
politicking would be so local that it would be easy to tune it out (as
people tune out Resident's Representative to the Apartment Company
elections).
