As usual, the good doctor is correct

As mentioned a few posts ago, Dr. Lizardo (link to the right) stated that more people voted for "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks than voted for President. I questioned that statement but, as it turns out, she is correct.

While I stand by my original statement that more people would vote if it were as easy to vote for President as it is to vote for the "American Idol," the fact is still pretty goddamn sad. I mean, there's a little more at stake in the Presidential election, isn't there, unless Taylor Hicks suddenly gets the power to order troops into battle. I'm sure FOX is working on it. But look on the bright side: could Taylor Hicks make more bad decisions than W?

And if you think that's sad, even fewer people vote for congressional seats. No wonder it looks like fundamentalist right-wingers are letting their "personal Jesus" run the country.

See, this is like that game "Operator".

I specifically refrained from saying "more than" or even "equal to"--I quote myself here:

"nearly the same number that voted for each candidate in the last presidential election".
