My son took the SAT II exam this weekend, and came back laughing about the English grammar portion. He was given an essay to correct for grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. But the content of the essay was very amusing, something to the effect of “Why the Electoral College Should be Eliminated.” According to the essay, the Electoral College is a vestige of when we had strong States’ Rights and a weak Federal government. But now we have a “strong Federal government and weak States’ rights” and have become (according to the essay) a “national village,” so presidents should be elected on a popular vote.
I’m just glad my son found it amusing. Time to stock up on more NRO T-shirts for him before he heads off to college!
