9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney for September 08, 2004
"Criticize all you want, but the vote is the most sacred, precious treasure in our society, prized above all things in the world." "So, perforce, it is our constitutional duty to squander it on a meager array of fools, liars and unregenerate daft...the Republic's founders must be spinning in their tombs like drill bits." "It's like a meatloaf...it may turn your stomach, but it's what you're getting for dinner, so you might as well put ketchup on it." "Why do you always use the meatloaf simile?" "Now, what I hate are the exit polls."
