Don't Look for Democracy in the US Presidency

Exactly a year from now, the US will be swearing in its 44th Resident.  She or She will stage manage the appearance of shouldering the weight of the world, in order to deflect attention from the financial gnomes buried under the Alps in their command and control bunkers.  EU human rights campaigners will once again point to the lack of democracy in amurka, where the one dollar, one vote ethic has been lost to the one million, one vote perversion of the process.

(I'd like to continue this farce, but i'm choking at the demagoguery of insulting the highly competent world of Formula One by comparing it to T. Poodle Bliar.)  Plus i must get some work done.
