The NY Times today had this story about Egypt's "elections" as one of their front page features:
I read this and just shook my head. Democrats cried bloody murder over a few hanging chads in Florida, and the mere possibility of something maybe being awry in Ohio... but at least Egypt took a few small steps in the right direction? I'm not saying that the Times completely overlooked obvious election fraud... they did cover it. But the attitude here is quite different from that of the United States elections. Reading this article next to a Times article about the 2004 or the 2000 elections, and you'd be under the impression that Egypt's elections were better than ours. I wouldn't be surprised if the editorial staff there actually thought that.
