Until yesterday, the Iowa constitution had verbiage in it that stated that "idiots" and "the insane" could not vote. We voted on a constitutional amendment to replace that politically incorrect phraseology with something like "those judged mentally incompetent". Pretty straightforward, huh?
Well, I would have thought so. But 18% of Iowans actually voted against the amendment. This makes me laugh every time I think about it. Why? WHY?
