Crimeans "Vote" to Join Russia
This is looking an awful lot like an old-school Soviet "election":
Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to leave Ukraine and join Russia, election officials said Sunday, capping a heavy-handed campaign that blocked most voters from hearing a vision for any alternative to unification with Moscow. Crimean election Spokesman Mikhail Malyshev said the final result was 96.77 percent to rejoin Russia and 2.51 percent against.Only 2.5% against? Give me a break. Given a normal distribution of idiocy, at least that many should have accidentally voted no. Part of the high vote for joining Russia might be explained by opposition groups boycotting the election. We might also cite intimidation as another factor explaining this. But still, even though we all expected the vote to go this way the numbers, as they stand, spell out one thing: FRAUD. And how is President Obama treating what could very well be this generation's Sudetenland crisis? He's busy all day meeting with the PA President Abbas. How I long for the good old days of the strong and robust foreign policy of Jimmy Carter.

If you want to go along with the sheeple feel free to do so, but just maybe the 60% of Crimeans that are ethnic Russians really think Khrushchev handing them over never thinking of the possibility of the Soviet Union falling apart, was a bad idea.

Vlad took those three stooges rolled up and smoked them.
The Soviet Union will reform and Obama will get the laurels and celebrate like a pigeon playing chess.

Did you never hear the quote that goes something like
"we dont have to control the voters, we simply have to control who does the counting"
Results in so fast? Electronic vote counting? Not exactly rockey science to make the vote go any way you want. World Media being there is useless.
Amazing they still think that anybody is fooled (except by leftards who WANT to be fooled ) when such rediculous counts like 96+ % are reported.
They KNOW they can get away with it, with nobody (including our RatShit in chief) going to do anything about it.

Except "no" was not an option.
You could either vote for Crimea joining Russia, or for the re-institution of the 1992 constitution, which, according to what I've read, meant joining Russia, but a wee bit later.
You could not vote for the status quo, which already gave Crimea an important degree of autonomy within Ukraine.
The whole thing was a sham from the beginning.

When they talk about 'hanging chads' there, they are actually talking about hanging one or more guys named 'chad' ....
Terrible, I know but the 'joke' just doesnt work using Shevchenko
