Democracy failing

[ #1161 ]

I trust most of us remember last year's US presidential election in which poorly designed butterfly ballots caused so much ruckus. Well, history repeats itself this week in the hallowed halls of the Screen Actors Guild. America's sweetheart (and B5's evil Anna Sheridan), Melissa Gilbert narrowly won the SAG presidential election beating out an embittered Valrie Harper, TV's Rhoda. The culprit? Poorly designed ballots and complex instructions! Apparently thousands of ballots weren't properly signed, thus throwing the election results into doubt. Surely, Rosie O'Donnell can clear this up?

I didn't think voting was that difficult. Perhaps we should consider assigning supreme executive power based on the sword distribution of a watery tart. Come see the violence inherent in the system!
