Churchill’s quote

Sir Winston’s quote: “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”

Jay Nordlinger writes a very good column further illuminating this idea. Take the time to page down, and catch the individual antecdotes about New York city and political button-wearing. Here’s my favorite:

“I used to wear a “Vietnamese-American Against Kerry” button until someone on St. Mark’s stopped me and delivered a monologue on the Bush police state. When I brought up the real police state that my family lived in (including the re-education camps), he brushed that off and blathered on about Bush and the sorry state of the U.S. I decided to stop wearing the button because I couldn’t take the blind idiocy.”
