I don't typically quote the Washington Post in this Blog. but here's an interesting little turdlette of news from page A6:
To Date in the 2008 Primarypalloza, the vote count falls thusly:
REPUBLICAN VOTES: 20.5 Million
DEMOCRATIC VOTES: 36.6 Millon
On Tuesday Evening, 97.5 Million votes were cast in the American Idol finale.
We love to piss and moan about the state of affairs, and wring our hands lamenting that the country seems to be going to hades in a haversack. Yet we can't be bothered to get up, get out and cast our votes.
In a Democratic Republic, our vote is our voice. If we don't vote, we've no one but ourselves to blame for the state of things.
