John's World: Your best resource...

For all things political. Some helpful definitions for those of you confused by political rhetoric:
ballot: An object recording a voter's decision that is frequently counted toward an election's outcome.

debate: A contest to see which candidate can answer the fewest questions.

democracy: A moderately representative plutocracy.

electoral college: A process by which the number of states in the Union is narrowed down to the most important seven or eight.

lobbyist: A better-paid legislator.

[Even more and better stuff here]
This should clear things up for many of you.
