Putin's successor anointed

Here is the Register's editorial on the Russian election, with Putin's anointed successor, Dmitri Medvedev, winning handily. The government probably didn't have to cheat and intimidate so blatantly to win this one, but it did so anyway. Really clumsy. After griping about the election irregularities a bit, the U.S. should accept the results and shut up for a while, then quietly start asking how Russia intends to see to it that Iran doesn't get nukes, and can we cooperate.

Have we fixed the Tammany Hall corruption in New York State, where the unions are blocking infrastructure and bleed the citizens dry? Tammany Hall is a pope mafia fascist molestor cabal. Everywhere in this country we have hygiene problems in food and hospitals because Catholics are trying to restart the bubonic plague. Never mind that Roger Taney who wrote Dred Scott was Catholic, as was John Wilkes Booth and his cabal. And look at the Dioguardi heroin, Bonano crime and Damato Keating banking mafias behind McCain!
