Elections in 3rd World Countries

I just got a comment from OneMom.  She said she is still spinning about the Washington Caucus.  I am still spinning about the Washington Caucus.  My wife is fuming about the Washington Caucus and said, “This feels like a 3rd world country.”

It got me thinking.  Now, I don’t think it is quite that bad.  But, it is bad enough.   When the Party and the Media pick the Candidate, it isn’t really an election.  Ask any Cuban immigrant you know about elections.

Why isn’t the Main Stream Media freaking out about what happened in Washington?  There needs to be transparency.  Why would a responsible network accept election results without the data?  I am perfectly OK with a McCain win (I expected it).  But, show me the numbers.  This is irresponsible.

That said, I should know better than expect the media to be responsible.
