A Saudi Cleric's View of Democracy

A Saudi cleric had this to say about American democracy: (hat tip: Jim O)

Take the issue of elections, for instance. What do you think of a voting system like the American one that gives a physician, an intellectual, an astronaut, an intelligent person and the head of the family, a vote that has the same weight as the vote of an ignorant, a fool, an idiot, an imbecile, a hippy, a bum, an unemployed man, who has no diploma, culture, or brains. What is this?!

Clearly he forgot to include himself in the group of ignormauses unqualified to vote. I'm sure it was just an oversight.
