The Uniqueness of the EU

This is pretty sharp. From the headline ("Now I can Get Back to Ignoring You") to this great quote:

Lack of accountability is inherent in the EU. You will sometimes hear it said that the Commission, the EU's governing body, is undemocratic. In fact, uniquely in the Western world, it contrives to be anti-democratic, in the sense that you generally have to lose an election to be sent there: witness Neil Kinnock or Chris Patten.

The author is Daniel Hannan, himself a member of the European Parliament (according to the link from National Review's the Corner). The full article is available here.
