Election Stupidity Anyone?

Animal notes this bit of idiocy from Ezra Klein

“House popular vote?”  What the hell is this idiot blathering on about?

There is, apparently, some RHEEEEing on the political left about some of our institutions, specifically the Senate and the Electoral College, being “undemocratic.”  Well, yes; that’s by design.  The United States is not a democracy, it’s a Constitutional Republic.  The Constitution was written to include safeguards against direct democracy, which the Founders (correctly) saw as little more than mob rule.

It is called the Constitution Ezra, have an adult read it to you sometime
