Media Watch: Editor’s Note: An Apology To Our Readers
The most dramatic line (paraphrasing): Did you know that in order to vote, you have to, like, register?
Um, excuse me, but if someone’s so stupid they don’t know they have to register in order to vote, then I don’t want them registering nor voting. The common rallying cry we hear in the weeks leading up to election day revolves around how brave men and women have died for our right to vote. While that’s certainly true – and it’s true that people should indeed exercise their right to vote – frankly if someone’s not informed enough on the issues to cast an educated vote then I encourage those people to please please stay away from the ballot box.
Wouldn’t it be nice if people followed my advice? If they did, then about 75% of registered Democrats who have planned on voting on election day would change their minds and stay home.
Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?
