Why, why, why don't i see anywhere this objection to the current and soon to be past question of who ought to be president (does it fucking matter that neither gw nor ag, and maybe not even ralph nader, SHOULD be elected to president? standardized tests have better options (a, b, c, d, e)????) --sorry, this objection: Can the fucking electoral college!!!! We are not a democracy but a fundamentalist state. do you get me at all? who, you ought to ask, is the electoral college, and why are they there. aren't you good enough to decide independent of your state (that is, their legislators) who should lead your country? The electoral college is only one enemy of the people, but it was always meant to be exactly that. It is not your friend, and it is not the picture of "stability." learn something from this election and realize the possibility of democracy--which america under an electoral college has never truly known.

Funny, I posted the same thing about the A B C D standardized tests on my site.
Partial quote from my site: "This Gore is better than Bush, Bush is better than Gore.....c'mon people, if one guy was really "better" than the other one, we wouldn't be in the position we're in now. And for one person to claim a "win" over the other opponent, it just wrong. In my books, a popular vote would be something in the category of 75-80%, which is no where close to the margin in this election.....however you count it."

There were a lot of fat lady jokes in the editorial cartoons of late. This is the first and by far the best: Oliphant via, Nov. 14, 2000 (Probably requires a NYT cookie in advance.)
