Vote for Distracted Cat, but if not Casual Cat

Via Skepticlawyer, AV for cat owners.

Incidentally, Skepticlawyer appears less than impressed with some of the crap being spread by the No To AV campaign about the preferential voting systems used here in Oz.*
I’ve learned since the campaign started that Australia uses complex electronic voting machines. The person who runs third in a given constituency also routinely wins the seat, as well. Oh, and we also want to adopt First Past the Post, too, in a perverse bit of ‘the grass is always greener’ copy-cattery.
Which is, as she points out, bullshit. Do go and read the rest.

Come to think of it Reform Cat would be even better, but I'm not sure a 350 foot tall ginger tom that shoots lasers from its eyes needs a more sympathetic voting system.

* I've since seen it at Fausty's as well, though of course without the commentary on the misrepresentation of the Aussie voting system.
