From the annals of "achilles heels of democracy."

Remember, these are the idiots who foisted GWBush upon us.

Democracy is a good thing, but it is a clunky beast that rambles about a bit on its way toward the greater good, and it's always getting waylaid by ne'er-do-wells and snake oil salesmen, but I'm not exactly keen on the alternatives of monarchy, fascism, strongman dictatorship, or faux-communism as practiced by the former Soviet Union among others.

Still, in a democracy, you do have to put up with the fact that your fellow citizens may be slightly less than well-informed about the decisions they've been empowered to make, right down to trying to vote on the wrong day.

Hope everyone's having a super Tuesday.
