Back in the Ukraine
It seems like such an obvious point, someone must have made it. But snichols emerges from a turkey haze to wonder: why is that people are shutting down the entire country and factories in the Ukraine because the opposition candidate didn't get declared the winner of the election and here we're mocking our fellow democrats for wanting to look into it?

On a related note, does anyone detect any irony in the US demanding a fair election there but not here? Please flood snicholsblog with all the well-written punditry on this very point that she's missed...

Special paranoid point: snichols notices that on the precise day that Russia considers switching some of its investments from dollars to Euros, the US publically backs the Ukraine candidate, not the one the Russians want--is a new post cold war chilliness moving in?
