Democracy dies in darkness indeed

democracy dies in darkness

The Washington Post’s motto is “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” How classic that the newspaper editors allowed the first headline before the spectacular backfire that caused them to adjust it to the one on the right.

The opinion piece noted, “The current process is clearly flawed, but what would be better? … A better primary system would empower elites to bargain and make decisions, instructed by voters.

At least the paper’s true colours came out that regular voters mustn’t have the requisite intelligence to make such important decisions that highly educated liberal elites obviously do. Way to go!

Maybe WaPo should change the masthead to “Sunlight is the best disinfectant“.
