The really irksome thing about their letter to Kofi Annan is the contempt it shows for Americans generally. The U.S., in their view, really is no different from nations like Haiti, Liberia or Saddam Hussein's Iraq, where vote manipulation and rigged outcomes are all part of the national landscape.
It's not even a partisan contempt. Like their ideological brother Michael Moore, they think ill of all of us. When Moore was laughing with his friends in France about how easily manipulated the lowbrow masses of the U.S. are, he wasn't differentiating Republicans from Democrats. His was a universal snort of contempt. He thinks we're all idiots. So do Grijalva and friends. We're mean-spirited, racist idiots.
Their greatest affront, of course, is assigning a higher level of morality to the folks at the U.N., who currently are under investigation regarding the theft of perhaps $5 billion from the mouths of hungry Iraqi babies.
Now that's harsh.

The Left figured out the storyline about Florida in 2000 and no matter of facts like all the recounts that showed that Bush still won will change that belief. Now, some congressmen want the UN to moniter our election. What a joke.
