Irony, Embodied

I don’t normally wax political on this blog (well, okay, occasionally), but this is just too good to pass up.

Apparently, some people in Asia think that the elections in Pakistan might be “rigged”. And they’re asking us to monitor things, to make sure it’s all on the up-and-up.


Yeah. Um. Okay. So, we should hire some jackasses jackals to make sure the coyotes aren’t eating the chickens. Is that what you’re saying?

Here, read this little gem:

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. policymakers must keep pressure on President Pervez Musharraf to hold fair elections in Pakistan next month or risk deeper chaos in the nuclear-armed country, an important ally in Washington’s anti-terror campaign, experts told Congress on Wednesday. “

Well, geewhillackers. Ain’t that something.  Talk about your pot calling the kettle black.  Talk about asking the bullies to bully the bully.  But, I suppose it’s a strategy.  I mean, desperate times call for desperate measures, right?

Hey, people-in-charge, how about this idea:

“U.S. Policymakers must keep pressure on state Boards of Elections to hold fair elections in the US this year, or risk chaos and further voter apathy in the nuclear-armed country with the ridiculous foreign policy that is the reason that the anti-terror campaign exists in the first damn place.”
