Dead Democracy

August 17th, 2017 by Bertie

I shook out the old rag for a spot of post-prandial reading and dashed if I didn’t find something of interest.  It seems the chappies who track that sort of thing say there are millions more registered voters in the dashed USA than there are dashed adults.  “Jeeves!” I said.  (Jeeves is my man, don’t you know).  “Cast your optics over this bit of news.  Rummy, eh, and I dare say a tad disturbing.  Hardly compatible with the finest traditions of the America democracy and what not, what what what?”

“Certainly it would be news of great moment and cause for public alarum, sir, were these United States a genuine democracy.  But I fear . . . “  I cut the blighter off.  He can become just a little shirty when it comes to political theory.

“Jeeves,” I said, “you don’t appreciate the vast potentialities.  Here is an untapped demographic.  Identity is all the rage these days, Jeeves, and fake voters need candidate too.  Having led a somewhat novelized life thanks to good  ol’ Wodehouse, I am positively the ideal candidate to appeal to the fictional demographic.  I have all the bona fides.  Jeeves, lead me to the nearest hustings.  I shall mount it eftsoons and forthwith, and if I am not Mayor of Metropolis or Senator from Franklin in a trice, or a jiffy if you prefer the term, I miss my guess.”
