It has long been known that party politics exhibits quantum effects. (An excerpt, that I’m sure is not retaliation for Sokal’s hoax, is “…we show evidence using the Smith et. al data that a tenet of a classical model that has animated work in the field appears violated in a form that gives way naturally to embrace of the superposition principle and then suggest that the classical formalisms and theories of preference separability might best be viewed as special cases of the quantum versions.”)
But what use is this theory, if we can’t apply it to any situations of practical relevance? Finally, the theory of quantum politics has found a way to explain current politics with A Quantum Theory of Mitt Romney, in an article that actually does a better job of explaining complementarity, uncertainty, etc. than do a lot of popular articles (quantum leap, not so much).
As an example of what this new theory explains, here is a Feynman diagram depicting a collision between a Romney and an anti-Romney that yields an electron and a $20 bill.
