QOTD #19 - On voters
It's election time here in Canada as we get set to go to the polls on May 2nd. The federal party leaders - most of them, anyway - duked it out last night in the English-language debate. They're going at it again in French tonight, which is notable given that it was originally scheduled for tomorrow night. But after some hockey-loving citizens noticed it conflicted with, gasp, a Montreal Canadiens playoff game, the event was quickly bumped up a night.
Hockey over politics. Makes sense to me. It made this quote seem a little more...real:
Your turn: So did Sir Winston get it right? Are voters really too dumb for their own good?
