A rare admission from a conservative (though it is just Jonah Goldberg):

"Now, as a conservative I don't mind that Americans aren't consumed with political fervor. In fact, I tend to like low voter turnout on the principle that the people not voting are probably the people I don't think should vote."

Just remember this when listening to the typical Republican spin about "liberal elites" not understanding the values of every day Americans. The Democrats benefit when more Americans vote. The Republicans don't.

(The rest of Goldberg's piece proceeds to argue that Americans are basically stupid for choosing to watch Paris Hilton do, at least, something on Fox as opposed to watching the President say nothing on ABC.)
