think about it this way:

In the 1860 election, there was Lincoln and Douglas

Lincoln had 39% popular vote opposed to Douglas with 29% , (and 2 other candidates...)

regardless, Lincoln had 180 electoral votes, and Douglas had 12, freaking 12.

Now tell me how Bush can't win a screwy election with barely enough electoral votes, even when he loses the popular vote by a long shot.

Which, not to go completely off-topic or anything, is why I LOVE the proportional representation by preferential vote we have in Oz.

Even if it did get Johnny in
I hate having my own scruples used against me


But at least he was genuinely elected every time. Oh, yay for democracy


See, that's the problem with democracy right there. Terry Pratchett was right. Obviously I should get a vote as I am clearly an intelligent, informed responsible adult, but it also means that idiot over there gets an equal right to choose and everyone can tell he's a numbskull with no clue whose opinion wouldn't even be listened to in the pub at 3am on Sunday morning.
