When democracy gives the world George W Bush, benevolent dictatorships don't sound so bad...

Bush looks great, compared to our choices in this election. Since this thread is about evil, either one of the choices we have fall roughly into that category. I've voted in every national election since 1980, making a choice this time is the hardest one I've had.

See, this is where most people misunderstand the role of dictator and get confused between dictators and despots. Should a dictator go mad, they get replaced (in the Roman system). Plus, a mad dictator might still be benevolent. And if they aren't, well I did see benevolent dictators are the way forwards... ;)

Yes, but as far as I'm aware, he was never Governor of Texas. ;)

A shadowy ruling elite that can overthrow a benevolent dictator if they aren't benevolent in the right way... this is starting to sound substandard.

I've just always found her very irritating. And she's evil.

Also - leggings get a reprieve. I have a new found respect for them after trying to dress a 4 year old girl in something she won't outgrow in 5 minutes.

Vorderman simply irritates me. Especially when she speaks about something political but can't explain her views. :doh:
Leggings are far too comfortable and therefore allows for a vast expansion of the waistline. *shakes fist*.
