From bad to worse

Remember Dick Cheney saying “So?” in response to the fact that a growing majority of Americans think the War in Iraq wasn’t worth the cost?  It’s worth repeating, in case you’ve forgotten:

Well, according to bland blonde Dana Perino, White House mouthpiece, the American people had their chance and now we should just shut up and color.  Take a look, especially at the 3:40 mark:

Y’all get that?  Every four years, we get our say, and in between we should just sit down and let the President do whatever he wants.  Provided, of course, we elect the “right” people.

During every presidential election in America we’re subjected to the quadrennial “should we scrap it” discussion about the Electoral College.  I’m beginning to think even that’s not enough, and we should change to a Parliamentary system.  In Europe, Bush & Co. would have been booted out on a “no-confidence” vote four years ago.

In Europe, the governments fear the people.  In America, we’ve got it backward.
