Preaching democracy

Our presidents appoint our Supreme Court judges. Our Supreme Court judges just appointed our president of the United States. Kind of cozy, right?

I always thought that in any game, event, contest or race, the one with the most score, points or votes would be the winner. Not so.

There are two exceptions. One is golf, the other is for president. In golf, the one with the highest score loses. The one who gets 200,000 more votes for president loses. Put it this way: Gore – the golfer; Bush – the bowler. The rules weren’t changed. They weren’t playing the same game. So much for democracy.

I hope we don’t have the arrogance and ignorance to go around the world preaching democracy.
