Stuff it

Tim Blair reminds us of some unfinished business:
Why does Ohio always attract stupid meddling Europeans?
About 60 mainly European election observers have taken up their posts in six states, including Florida and Ohio, saying they hope their presence will serve as a "preventative to the shenanigans" during voting tomorrow.

"We will tell the people of Ohio whether their election is free and fair," said one of the observers, Hugo Coveliers, a Belgian senator who plans to monitor voting in Cleveland.

What part of "bite my butt" don't you understand, Hugo?

Captain Ed has much more including John Kerry promising to change US election law to satisfy some Finnish guy's whine.

All of this comes about because of US membership in a international organization for bureaucratic expense account padding. No, not the UN - the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Never heard of it? Well, all you need to know about it is that well known crook, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), is the "President of the Parliamentary Assembly". Time to save the taxpayers some money and ditch this turkey. I'm sure Alcee can find another way to line his wallet.
