My only complaint about the UN...

...is that it doesn't have a groin I can kick. I like the sense of accountability that only a tender, kickable spot can offer.

via drudge, Global monitors find faults:

The observers said they had less access to polls than in Kazakhstan, that the electronic voting had fewer fail-safes than in Venezuela, that the ballots were not so simple as in the Republic of Georgia and that no other country had such a complex national election system."

To be honest, monitoring elections in Serbia a few months ago was much simpler," said Konrad Olszewski, an election observer stationed in Miami by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Allow a bunch of anti-American Eurocrats in to monitor American elections and whaddaya expect? Smug, condescending jackasses. Thanks for trying to delegitimize our democracy by comparing it to a bunch of corrupt Third World kleptocracies.
"Our presence is not meant as a criticism," said Ron Gould, Olszewski's team partner and the former assistant chief electoral officer for Elections Canada. "We mainly want to assess changes taken since the 2000 election."

What about your snide criticisms. Were those meant as criticisms? Oh, and Re: WWII, your welcome.
"There is a lot of interest in Japan where this election observation is seen as a kind of satire," said Fumi Kobayashi, the New York-based correspondent for NTV. "So strange to imagine Europeans coming to monitor elections in the U.S., don't you think?"

Even the Japanese are having a poorly lip synced laugh at our expense, thanks to the quisling Dems trying to delegitimize our election. This is embarrasing. Oh, and Japan, Re: Hiroshima and Nagasaki, theres more where that came from. Watch it.
"Unlike almost every other country in the world, there is not one national election today," said Gould, who has been involved in 90 election missions to 70 countries. "The decentralized system means that rules vary widely county-by-county, so there are actually more than 13,000 elections today."

Yeah, that's right, our counties have more sovereignty than most European Countries. But good luck with the EU thing, really. Re: WW4, your gonna be p0wnd.

Oh, and just in case you wanted to see the quisling dems in action versus the what-the-hell-are-these-dictator-coddlers-doing-in-our-country Republicans:

"The United States has long been a model for the world," said Richard Williams, a poll-watcher officially designated by the Democratic Party. "If we allow international observers we will continue to have a leading role."

Not everyone agrees. Jeff Miller, a Republican congressman from Florida, considers the monitors an insult and has publicly urged them to leave. "Get on the next plane out of the United States to go monitor an election somewhere else, like Afghanistan," he said.

update: Well, strictly speaking, these monitors aren't from the UN. They're from the "Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe." That's right, "in Europe." Yeah, I know its tough living in the land of strategic irrelevance, but the next time you want to live vicariously through American dominance just go watch a Bruckheimer flick like the rest of the world.
