That's Democracy Baby!

The truly wonderful thing about democracy, revolutionary really in the context of human history, is the even the brain-dead can vote. Leading the charge is Ms. Cameron Diaz, as found on the DrudgeReport.

Ms. DIAZ: We have a voice now, and we're not using it, and women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. We could lo--if you think that rape should be legal, then don't vote. But if you think that you have a right to your body, and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote, and those are the...

Obviously I am not up to Ms. Daiz's mental capacities, because I don't follow the necessary and sufficient logic that leads from banning late-term abortions to the legalization of rape. I don't think this even meets the standards of fear-mongering as this is just too plain stupid to take seriously. But that is the problem isn't it? Oprah brings on Cameron Diaz, P. Diddy and Drew Barrymore and expects to get an intelligent plea to the youth to vote. I wouldn't vote either if I was only exposed to Hollywood idiots.
