Today's Note from a Madman

Wednesday, November 23, 2004

The White House released a statement saying the United States was "deeply disturbed by extensive and credible indications of fraud." They also suggested to authorities "not to certify results until investigations of organized fraud were resolved."

Too bad they were speaking about the elections held in the former Soviet republic of the Ukraine, where Russian President Vladimir Putin's man, Viktor F. Yanukovich has apparently defeated the choice of President Bush and his European Globalist allies, Viktor A. Yushchenko.


Much the same way President Bush's spokesman, Marc Racicot urged John Kerry to concede well before every vote was counted, Viktor F. Yanukovich, the winner (so far) suggested his opponent throw in the towel as well. It appears that Mr. Yushchenko has no such intentions, and he has the backing of the White House and many European leaders.

It appears that the Ukraine has its own dividing line, much like the United States. The eastern part of the country voted mostly for the apparent winner, Mr. Yanukovich while the western part of the country chose Europe's and President Bush's boy, Mr. Yushchenko. It seems that the Ukraine has their own "Red-State / Blue-State" issues.

Imagine if Russian President Putin were to endorse John Kerry for US President. Now imagine if Mr. Putin (or as President Bush calls him, "My friend Vladimir") were to "advise" Kenneth Blackwell, the head of the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign in Ohio and Ohio's Secretary of State, not to certify Ohio's results until investigations of organized fraud were resolved." I can hear the screaming now.

Maybe we should fix our own house before criticizing the blue-prints of another nation's democracy.
