Ukrainian Demonstrators Threaten to Storm Government
Nov. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko led more than 1 million protesters to parliament, threatening to storm government buildings unless lawmakers annul results that show he lost the election to the prime minister.I smile at the thought of our congress debating the annulment of Young George's triumphant attainment of the throne. After the election, we Democrats merely brought out our self-flagellating whips and let "morality" have its wicked way with us.
The parliament debated canceling official results that led to Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych's victory in Sunday's vote. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the U.S., the U.K. and Germany said the ballot counting was flawed as central Kiev was overrun by demonstrators in a sea of orange banners shouting Yushchenko's name.
Good morning, friends. Hope to be doing a few art things, but Thanksgiving, as always, disrupts. I may end up eating two dinners on Thursday, neither one luckily I will have to cook, but will be within blogging distance, so have no fear.
