Some heady advice From a Political genius

Cartoon producer and engaging political analyst Matt Stone, co-creater of South Park, and some extraordinary films like BASEketball, has some worthy advice for undecided voters, to wit; don't bother voting.
"Stay home," said Stone. "It doesn't matter who you're gonna vote for. If you really don't know who you're gonna vote for, or are uninformed, or haven't really thought about it? Just stay home."
In person, Stone has little patience for those on the political fence.

"If you really don't know or you're just going to vote for George Bush because he's already in office, or you're gonna vote for John Kerry because he's on the cover of Rolling Stone, don't do that. That's lame. Just stay home. That's all we ever said," Stone told the San Francisco Chronicle in Sunday's editions
While I doubt that there is a significant population of undecided voters at this point in time, I would expect more constructive advice from this font of wisdom, this provider of high quality and inspiring entertainment. Mr. Stone could have suggested that it is incumbent on people to educate themselves about the issues they feel are important, and try to make a reasoned decision. Or he could have lent his support and his reasons for it to one or another of the candidates, instead he chooses to insult the few who reamain on the fence. Nice work Jackass.
