Best summary of the American electoral system

Tarmac Saturday is on the way, but I'm watching South Park, and it's the "Vote or Die" episode.

Stan: "I just don't see the point of voting given a choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich."

"I guess I better learn how to pick between a giant douche and a turd sandwich because that's the only choice I'll ever have."

"Stan's vote for turd sandwich brings it's total to 37. That leaves giant douche at 1,410, meaning that giant douche still wins."

The whole episode is great, and should be required viewing around election season for anyone who believes the American electoral system is a crock.
