This is a poll. Please wait a bit while the poll get actualized.

I voted:
During national holidays and when the media is fully on the hype train about some stupid stuff.

I would say at the beginning of their term.The people have a short attention span when it comes to being outraged. So if they pass something controversial at the beginning of their term it gives them plenty of time to recuperate the voter's trust. Another good moment to pass controversial legislation is when the people are focused on stupid non-stories like the Zimerman case, missing pretty white girl of the day story or some other story that doesn't deserve national attention.
