Meanwhile in the Free World…

I have to say that I’m impressed at Lopez Obrador’s response to the recent Mexican elections.

You should read his July 16 speech at the second information assembly in Mexico City’s Zocalo.

He is doing now what Al Gore should have done in 2000 (and, arguably, what John Kerry should have done in ’04): He’s contesting the election results and defending the sanctity of the ballot box. It’s a humbling thing for the mighty United States to be shown the way by an impoverished state such as Mexico.

There’s an excellent Podcast discussion of the election at Here On Earth. In this program, host Jean Feraca discusses the similarities and differences this has with the allegations of American election fraud.
