The real meaning of democracy
Even as the USA goes around the world spreading democracy they are finding that democracy is taking root a little faster than they had hoped. The problem is that these darn people out here in Asia are taking this democracy thing a little too literally and they are going out and voting for people that the Americans don't want them to vote for. So now we have two democratically elected governments, one in Palestine and one in Nepal, who are bad people and unacceptable to the USA. They are terrorists, for Pete's sake! Perhaps this thing called democracy needs to be defined a little more carefully to make sure that those dumb voters out in Asia don't elect just anybody.
