As the philosopher Winston C. once said...

Democracy is the worst form of government... except for all the others.[*]

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"I prefer Churchills 'The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter'."

"Today the conversation needs less than 140 characters."

The facebook gen intelligentsia score big on this one.

That's right up there with all the other children's classics like Thomas tank engine and Toots Mctug.


Some people never mature, some resist adulthood and others loath "grownup talk".

I prefer Churchill's : " The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter." Today the conversation needs less than 140 characters.

"anon says... a five minute conversation with the average voter."

like the 36% of canadian voters who were responsible for electing another librano majority government?

what will canada look like after 3 years and 100 billion dollars worth of deficit spending?

i shudder to think.

So if the firm was hired to come up with a nickname for our PM....bets they could do better than starting with SHID and going from there?

After all...they just started with BOAT to get Boaty McBoatface.

(Think about it).
