The Art of Voting

In my last post I teased Democrats for not being smart enough to vote. True story:

One of my best friends is a good lifelong Democrat. After the 2000 election he immediately began attacking the butterfly ballot as confusing and suggested that if only the folks in Florida had an easy to understand system like that used in St. Louis, Al Gore would be president.

He really worked up a head of steam about the whole issue at dinner one night. About 5 minutes into the harangue, I stopped him and asked if he really thought our voting system was easy.

He did.

Our system: butterfly ballots.
