Toilet Paper and Politics: Of Course They're Related

Continuing our frantic, time-starved existence, we are once more turning to a favourite tv show for inspiration for a blog update. In the Battlestar Galactica episode Exodus: Part 1, president Gaius Baltar reminisces:

Well, let me tell you about my day. It was a hoot. Had the most fascinating chat with one of the Dorals. He's got this theory about sanitation being the key to regaining human trust and confidence. Something about toilet paper. No, lack of toilet paper, that's it. How if people could only wipe their bums properly, there would be a measurable uptick in the polls.

Is this theory, in fact, transferable to real-world politics?

For those of you who have not yet passed out due to boredom, here is more Battlestar Galactica-related hygiene trivia:

Now, when is somebody going to get their arse in gear and design
