Life's little mysteries
Brilliant at Breakfast has a great post on a subject that's long baffled me: why do we voters insist on electing politicians based on likability rather than competence? We wouldn't trust some amiable doofus to do a brake job on our cars, so why do we insist on mediocrity (or worse) in our leaders? I don't get it. But go read the whole thing. Jill said it a lot better than I can.
