Ukraine/US elections

"US Secretary of State Colin Powell said today the United States cannot accept the results of elections in Ukraine, which the opposition says was marred by fraud. (...) 'We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not meet international standards' and allegations of fraud hadn't been investigated, Mr Powell said at a news conference."

(via The Australian)

"After the 2004 U.S. presidential election there were allegations of data irregularities and systematic flaws which may have affected the outcome of both the presidential and local elections. (...) Allegations range from significant exit poll and other data irregularities potentially characteristic of fraud, to complaints voting was not conducted equally for all citizens, for example, uneven voting machine distribution which might lead to long voting lines and disenfranchisement."

(via Wikipedia. Don't even get me started on the 2000 US elections...)

Irrespective of whether the Ukrainian elections were rigged or not (and they quite likely were): SHUT UP, SEPTICS!!!! For fuck's sake - can't even run their own elections properly and keep on mouthing off... Hence a little linguistic puzzle for our democratically-challenged US-American brethren:

Pot. Calling. Kettle. Black. People. Glass houses. Shouldn't. Throw. Stones.
