    I get hyperbole and sarcasm, but in all fairness to us (the U.S.), it is not really quite the same thing.

    I don’t know, Sammy. The parallels are uncanny. Disputed results. The election being called too early by powerful players, then recanting that call. Partial recounts offered. All that is left is for Khamenei to decide to stop the counting and effectively give it to Ahmadinejad.

    Sometimes I feel that we take our democracy for granted. We’re lucky to have peaceful changes of power. But Americans seem to get more upset about bad referee calls during basketball games than egregious meddling with the voting process.

    With all due respect, Starluna, we don’t have a “supreme leader” who warned of bloodshed over the political protests from our disputed election. And our election dispute, however flawed, was still presided over by judges, even if GOP in nature.

    I will agree that we take our free elections for granted (even if they are more “bought” than “free” at times.)
