At Least Al Gore Accepted Defeat

South of the border the Leftist Mexican presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has organized protests that disrupt Mexico City. All because he didn't get the most votes in July's election. He thinks he was robbed and everyone's in on the conspiracy, even the electoral tribunal that today rejects most of his charges of voter fraud. Obrador has called for another massive rally where he could be named the leader of a civil resistence movement that would "continue to block streets and cripple traffic in Mexico City for years."

Thankfully, AlGore was more serious in 2000. He may have gone completely nutty since then, but he cared enough about the country not to set up a permanent protest camp on the Washington Mall.
