The folly of the Electoral College  NOV 03 2008

There are likely many benefits of an electoral college voting system, but I would still like to see it dead. Because this is just crazy:

The presidency could be won with just 22 percent of the electorate's support, only 16 percent of the entire population's.

That is, you could lose 78% of the popular vote and still gain The White House! Is that even correct? This seems insane to me. (via jake)
