To shove another Churchill quote into the fray: “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”
And also: “I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”
Not that it’s germane to anything, but there ya go. Beggars can’t go looking for periodontitis in gift horses’ mouths. Or words to that effect.
