VOTE? contemptuous laughter

<I misquote:>

I am Aruthur, king of the Britons.

King of the who?

The Britons.

Who are the Britons?

Well, we all are, we're all Britons, and I am your king.

Well I didn't vote for you.

You don't VOTE for kings!

Well how'd you become king then?

The lady of the lake, her arm clad in shimmering samite held aloft 
excalibur from the bosom of the lake, signifying that I Arthur was to be 
King of the Britons.

Listen, stange women lying in ponds is no basis for a system of 
government. Supreme executive authority is derived from a mandate from 
the masses. Not some farcical aquatic ceremony. Look if I went 'round 
sayin' I was emperor because some moistened bint had lumped a scimitar 
at me, they'd have me locked away...

shut up!

ah! now we see the violence inherent in the system!

Shut up! Bloody Peasant!

BEIN' REPRESSED! Did you see that? Did you see him repressin' me?

Look folks, this isn't a democracy, its a game. "Feudalism at its 
Finest." I know the feelings and the people are real, but the government 
isn't. Sheesh, loosen up. You think hitting each other is a clever way 
of choosing a chief executive, but you still want to vote? What a bunch 
of nuts...

If more fun people played politics, politics would be more fun.
