We Don't Live in a Democracy

On February 9th Louisiana held it's party primary elections. Mike Huckabee narrowly defeated John McCain. However, at least 43 of our 47 GOP national convention delegates from Louisiana will be casting their votes with McCain. Similarly, there's talk about how these primary votes on the Democratic side won't matter either, and it will come down to "Super" delegates like Jason Rae. Rock on America!

Not to quibble, but I think this is less an indictment of America, and more an indictment of these particular parties. That is, these delegate shenanigans are not a matter of law but of party rule, and the parties can be just as democratic as they want -- or not. I agree it's undemocratic and offensive.
