Poor Lefist Loser Syndrome - Mexico style

Isn't it interesting that no matter what country has an election, if the left in that country loses it's always "faud"?

"Thousands of defiant supporters of leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took to the streets Saturday in a bid to overturn his narrow election defeat, launching protests that threatened to widen Mexico’s regional and class divisions.

Lopez Obrador called for protests across Mexico, saying last Sunday’s elections were more fraudulent than those held during 71 years of one-party rule. European Union election observers have said they had found no major irregularities.

Most of Lopez Obrador’s supporters come from poor southern states while conservative Felipe Calderon’s strength is in Mexico’s industrialized north.

Election officials say Calderon beat Lopez Obrador by less than 244,000 votes out of a total of 41 million ballots — or a margin of about 0.6 percent.

“We are never going to recognize this man (Calderon),” said Apolinario Fernandez, 37, a teacher from Lopez Obrador’s home state of Tabasco in the southeast. “If he wants, let him govern in the north for the rich, but not in the south."

Deja vu?

"Aguilar predicted that Lopez Obrador would never recognize Calderon’s narrow electoral victory.

“He will never concede defeat,” Aguilar said. “Once the election results are certified, he will open a permanent campaign of criticizing the government.”

Why bother, just outsource to the Kos Kids, by now their failed attempt at keeping Bush down must have them looking elsewhere.

This just in: No word yet whether Keith Olbermann will look into irregularities.
