'As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.' -Mencken
While this quote was viewed as being as prescient as any of Nostradamus' predictions when Bush came into office, the mechanism it describes is still in action. In any large group of people, there are a large number of stupid people - they deserve accurate representation.
