My favorite, and probably truest, Fark.com headline.
Note: What’s with Erica getting so political all of the sudden? Could it be part of her restyle?
Anyway, if you’ll remember awhile back, I was all anti-politics and anti-voting. And there was a good reason: because I am not informed enough to vote, and I don’t care enough to be informed.
I have no interest in voting because I do not want to devote the time to learning about all of the issues and all of the politicians’ stances. Plus, well, I just think the whole thing is corrupt. But then I see the headline above and I start to read through the article (and even though it’s from The Daily Mail), I find some truth in it.
The majority of Americans are too dumb to pick a leader. Too dumb in the fact that they are like me and do not want to do the research. I mean, when I found Roseanne was running for President, I wanted to vote for her just because she’s Roseanne. Which leads me back to the point I made in this post: because leaders are only in office for 4 years, we don’t put too much precedence on throwing them in there.
Maybe we all ought to care a little more (myself included). Maybe we will now that we’re ticked off at gas prices. 😉
NOTE: I have been informed that the President has nothing to do with gas prices. This explains my earlier statements in the post: I am dumb. Thanks, David! You’re lucky I still like you.
