I wished we had the British system so we could quick call an election before vast chunks of the electorate forget what turds the Republicans are, but I learned that the British don't have the British system anymore.

"Striking when the iron was hot" certainly worked in the Khaki Election of 1900, the Coupon Election of 1918, and most famously in the election of 1931 which was called by a coalition government that had come into office promising not to call an election. Also on several later occasions, most notably for Labour in 1966 and 1974, when elections weren't anywhere near due.
