democrats reject Colbert

i had a friend tell me they were disappointed that the SC dems wouldn't let Colbert on the ballot. that's not quite true: they wouldn't let him use their party name to promote humor. what this incident truly represents is a learning opportunity for people to realize that candidates are selected for us by party bosses we don't know.

this isn't the "democracy" you've been promised, folks.

  1. It's the difference between "what do you want for dinner tonight?" and "would you rather have beef or chicken?" What if I want pork? Or if I'm vegetarian? Or if I'm not hungry at all, thank you?

    Parents don't run their households as a democracy, which is why we call it a Nanny State when we're forced into an artificial two-party system.
