mexican elections update

I think blogger two-way at Daily Discharge has pretty accurately summed up my feelings on the "stolen-elections." Saves me from having to write anything more about it.

And by the way, I was rooting for Italy, but I still felt like France played a far better game. Anyway, Viva Italia. Also, interesting piece on what the Brits can learn from the Italians in the Telegraph from a few days ago.


  1. What about all the ballots that were found in 2 trash dumps? That story has disappeared - was it mentioned in the Mexican press?
    France played a helluva a game but being an Italian ex-pat like you, I kinda wanted the Azurri. However, expect a big fall out regarding the Zidane head butt scandal. Apparently the Italian player leveled the "N" word at him and made anti muslim remarks...

  2. like i said, i am not thinking about the elections anymore, we'll hope AMLO has his day in court.

    as to the French, I did hear that also. I thought John Guilfoil's post at Blog Critics was pretty comprehensive.
