Right-wing voter fraud outrage in three ... two ... one ...

Having gone batshit crazy, screeching, biting the heads off of live kittens insane with rage over the utterly contrived ACORN voter fraud in the last U.S. election, we should of course expect Canada's retards whackjobs lunatics Blogging Tories to go similarly ballistic over:

Fake Afghan Poll Sites Favored Karzai, Officials Assert

KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghans loyal to President Hamid Karzai set up hundreds of fictitious polling sites where no one voted but where hundreds of thousands of ballots were still recorded toward the president’s re-election, according to senior Western and Afghan officials here.

The fake sites, as many as 800, existed only on paper, said a senior Western diplomat in Afghanistan, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the political delicacy of the vote. Local workers reported that hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of votes for Mr. Karzai in the election last month came from each of those places. That pattern was confirmed by another Western official based in Afghanistan.

“We think that about 15 percent of the polling sites never opened on Election Day,” the senior Western diplomat said. “But they still managed to report thousands of ballots for Karzai.”

When asked about this obvious affront to basic democratic principles for which Canadian soldiers are dying, Manning Centre for Building Democracy Senior Fellow Stephen Taylor replied, "Fuck you."
