Four snappy signs advertising democracy

Burmese military party wins Burmese military party elections, democracy party concedes defeat.

I am grateful as hell to have the privilege to live in a country where the cartoonish shenanigans of superstitious autocrats won't likely ever get me killed. Say what you will about American elections and their efficacy (and with this last one, we've got plenty to bitch about), but it often irks me when critics of the American political system don't at least acknowledge that it could be much, much worse.
