Congrats Yushchenko

But how does the first election result of 49.6%/46.6% in favor of Putin's guy go to 52.1%/44.1% in favor of Yushchenko?! Quite a swing, no? Why, could it be the first election was clearly fraudulent? (Note: this second election had 12,000 foreign observers to help prevent fraud, making the results from this second time around the -- duh -- more credible figure).

Also, isn't it sad that 77% of eligible voters turned out in Ukraine, yet in this country on Nov. 2nd, for a record number of votes cast, it amounted to just 60% of eligible voters bothering to exercise the right to make their opinion known. Pathetic.
