Jolly Holiday in Ukraine

Isn’t it difficult to have an election when the current occupant of the office loses the vote but won’t step down?

Perhaps the United States is setting a bad example:
“… Yanukovych has refused to concede defeat and is vowing to challenge the results in court. His camp says it has filed nearly 5,000 complaints about Sunday’s balloting.”
Hm. Must have come from those lawyers the Kerry camp had on call.

Yanukovych lost, this last time by 2.3 million votes. Why not have a fourth vote and see what happens, or just hold the election over and over until he wins? Then again, rock paper scissors is an underrated way of settling things, and should be used more often. Best two out of three? No cheatsies, and…hey, you!…get that dioxin vial away from Yushchenko’s lunch!

    FYI, “occupaant” is the Dutch version of “occupant.” Or something.

    Yanukovych isn’t the current occupaant — that’s Kuchma — but he is Kuchma’s guy all right. The idea seems to be, if the court nullified one election, they can do it again. The only thing he’s missing is, you know, cause.
