saying of the day: democracy, wolves, and lambs

"A democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch." —Unknown. A version has been credited to James Bovard, but it appeared earlier on the internet. Right-libertarians like that version because they think they're the lambs.

A more accurate version? Capitalist democracy is two wolves and ninety-eight lambs voting on which wolf will decide what's for lunch.
