The French Election

I hadn't been paying too much attention to the French election. I only knew that one candidate was socialist, and the other was remarkably Hitler-like. Without knowing, I guessed that the election would be rigged to let the Hitler guy win. And I was right.
Excerpt: Right-wing candidate Nicolas Sarkozy scored an emphatic victory in the French presidential election Sunday, trouncing Socialist rival Segolene Royal and winning a clear mandate for his economic and social reforms.
But I have to ask, if it was such a trouncing, why were so many people upset and why did so many police have to be used?I'll tell you why. Because the election was rigged, just like they all are these days.
Excerpt: The French election, from the start, has been plagued by election fraud -- bogus polling data, false exit polls, and electronic voting machine and machine counting irregularities were hallmarks of the first presidential election round. ES&S's I-Votronic machines were used in both elections across France. Only Sarkozy's party was supportive of the machines, with all the other political parties calling for a moratorium on their use. Turnout in the French election was over 75 percent. With large turnouts historically favoring the left in France, the exit polling and actual polling were at odds with the turnout -- an indication of massive election fraud.
At least the French know how to behave when their election is stolen.

Oh, and if you're wondering, I don't think it's a good thing AT ALL that Sarkozy won.
