The people in general are certainly incompetent and I wouldn't trust them with my goldfish. They elect idiots and crooks, let themselves get fooled into believing that they've done otherwise, all the while knowing the truth somehow. It'd be a perfect story for Kurt Vonnegut. The only thing that makes democracy desirable is that rule is divided amongst so many people that tyranny is far less likely. Sure we have power-hungry politicians, but the fact that they have to pander to us means that they at least have to stay within the bounds of sanity to stay in power (evangelicals not withstanding). Democracy blows, but it's better than any other alternative.
