Good show!

The Economist is happy with the American primaries, in spite of the fact that they likely seem daft to the Brits, because the end result was that the US picked the two best candidates from each respective group. I'm happy too- you listen to on-the-street interviews with "the average voter" and you start thinking that maybe democracy is a bad idea! But, in the end, both parties really did pick their best candidate. Basically the exact opposite of the last Presidential election, which was like Freddy versus Jason!

So, raise a glass! (Pop allowed)

No, Freddy v. Jason was entertaining, or at least close to it.

I've often wanted to see politicians use that film as a campaign reference:

"My opponent wants to solve our economic problems with the machete of taxation, but I'm here to say that we need the finger-knives of budget cuts!"
