  • This satirical attack on the failings of democracy should be compulsory viewing.

    This is one of my favorite episodes because, like Stan, I am often criticized for not voting. Contrary to the notes on this site which claim the lesson learned is that “voting allows you to pick the lesser of two evils”, the real moral of the story is that there is no point in voting AT ALL if your choice is between a douche and a turd. And as Balding Man says “Nearly every election since the beginning of time has been between some douche and some turd. They\'re the only people who suck up enough to make it that far in politics.” I would add that if people would stop voting for douches and turds that there might be less of both in politics. Oh well.
