Let's open up a discussion on requiring tests demonstrating some minimal knowledge and logic for voters.
I don't think this will have the outcome you desire. In my experience, especially when it comes to voting, intelligent and logical people are only different in that they are better at rationalizing their stupid choices.

The purpose of letting everyone vote, especially the lowest decile, is to make sure the people with the most resources and talent spend some effort on trying to educate their fellow citizens so they make better voting decisions. It keeps the loop closed. If the idiots can't affect decision making, why try to educate them?

I know it's bait. I'm a little peckish is all.

I typed that with my tongue in my cheek. You probably couldn't see that from where you're sitting and/you were distracted by the window of incest porn you have open on the side.

Firefly didn't have a fanbase until it got canceled and people saw it for the first time in crappy syndicated timeslots.

The tribute Garfield fans deserve, not the one they need.

A proper tribute involves Philip Glass and John Barrymore:
