There were 4.11 times more votes cast for american idol then there were for the american election. We are truly, and sincerely, fucked.

Yeah, but you realize its harder to fuck with the voting system of the U.S voting system than it is to American Idol. Speed calllers and whatnot greatly affect voting. Not to mention that you gotta sleep with more people...

I considered this, and I factored in that children can vote in AI but not the election, but seriously, come on, it won't make that big a difference. The speed dialers can only affect the vote so much. I know some people would go crazy about it, but not enough to seriously skew the results. I'd say that compared to those eligible to vote in the American election to those eligible to vote in AI there are still way more people that voted in the American Idol vote. More then two, probably three, times as many.

yea, but it's true, if people could vote over the phone or even online for pres. at a time when they most likely aren't doing anything else, without wasting gas to drive, time to vote, and energy to move, then there would probably be a hell of a lot more voters for the presidential election.

Keep this on the downlow, but the government has already handed the 2008 election over to FOX.

American President: 2008 Season Pilot

Bush: [singing] One, you're like a dream come true, um..three, I just want to be with you, um..two, girl it's plain to see that you're the only one four me , if ever I believe my work is done, then I'll start back at two,

Simon: Ok, enough.

Bush: I...I can sing ano---one more.

Simon: No, that one was too much. George, you're just not cut out to be an American President. You can't sing, you can't dance, you surely can't run a country. Why did you even show up...

Bush: Wait!

Simon: What?

Bush: Well, you forgot about Poland. That's gotta count for something, dudn't it?

Lol, I shouldn't really, but that's funny. Sad, but funny. Wonder what the rest of the world is thinking about now? Most likely: "Well that explains a lot."

Comedy bit 'cuz I can and don't have the means of making a short film:

French Guy #1: "Ah! Theez explaihns everyzing! Ze shtupid Prezidant, ze claims of freedahm through wahr, and zeir affinity for cheap and tasteless food! It ees an entire nation of retahrds! Ze may have saved our asses in two world wahrs, but we are superior!"

French Guy #2: "Holy sheet, ze Germahns are back!"

French Guy #1: "Ze Germahns?!! We love you Americahns! Please come and spread your shtupidi--Ah mean, wisdahm throughout our country! Build fast-food places on evahry cornahr! We won't eat zere, but build zem anyway!"

German #1: "Vhy do zey hate us so?"

German #2: "Ach du liber! Zey eat frog legs and drink vine! Vhy vould you vant to live zere, much less be friends vith zem?!"

German #1: "Because my doctor said ze climate vas better for my health! Now shut up and start invading so I can get my villa in order by happy hour! Schnell, schnell!!"

I need to stop before this gets too long, plus I need to see if my cousin would be interested in making this into a flash film...

Well, you don't have to register to vote, you don't have to be 18 to vote, you can vote more than once, EASILY, you can do it from home, and I don't doubt that their computers were hacked.

Yes, its sad that people won't vote, but that's not a fair statistic.
