Get him, Obrador. Put him in his political grave. Show 'em what happens when you mess with Mexico's electoral system. If Choice Point decides Calderon won, put 'em both in a bag with Katherine Harris, hang it from a tree, and hand out billy clubs to the townspeople. It's pinata time, baby.

By the by - why are so many news organizations saying something to the effect of "For the first time, millions of Mexicans living in the United States were allowed to vote from abroad, but only 32,632 ballots were actually cast, not an amount that was expected to affect the overall results."? Hmm? That's a lot of votes, for such a close race. Perhaps votes cast from the U.S. won't actually be counted, and this claim of "not an amount that was expected to affect the overall results" is just a way of getting people not to think about that segment of the vote? Hmmm?

The only thing that differs between this election and the 2000 election is that the Mexican leftist has backbone, whereas the bulk of Americans who fancy themselves leftists are weak and soulless. Obrador could mobilize millions of protestors. And the average Mexican still has the guts and glory of a true patriot. If Calderon "wins", I will pray for blood in the streets.
