Moonbats still demanding UN monitoring of US elections

US Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) is requesting that Secretary of State Colin Powell officially request the United Nations monitor the November general elections in the US, and particularly the Florida election.

13 Democratic Congressmen, led by members of the Congressional Black (Democratic) Caucus, requested UN intervention previously, and were turned down by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

"As legislators, we should guarantee the American people that our country will not experience another nightmare like the 2000 presidential elections," the members of Congress said in their letter to Annan.

The U.N. immediately responded that such a request could not be accepted unless if came from the U.S. government. Otherwise, a spokesman said, it could be considered "intervention in a country’s sovereignty."

It sounds like Annan has a better understanding of sovereignty than these moonbats who are supposed to be US lawmakers do.
In her letter to Powell, Johnson expressed grave concerns regarding electoral system reforms that were not undertaken after the 2000 election.

Recalling the contentious Florida vote count in 2000, the lawmakers urged the U.N. to "ensure free and fair elections in America."

"As lawmakers, we must assure the people of America that our nation will not experience the nightmare of the 2000 presidential election," Johnson said in the letter. "This is the first step in making sure that history does not repeat itself."

While all of this is going on, US Representative Corrine Brown (D-FL), who just last week was censured by the House for her antagonistic comments on the floor of that body, has announced that officials from the Democratic Institutions and Human Rights Office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe has confirmed that it will be present in the United States – specifically, in Florida – on Election Day.

Florida election officials have already announced that the foreign officials are not to be allowed access to polling places, and would have to remain at a distance of more than 50 feet from polling places.

Other than Johnson & Brown, signing moonbats of the initial UN letter include Julia Carson of Indiana, Jerrold Nadler, Edolphus Towns, Joseph Crowley and Carolyn B. Maloney, all of New York, Raul Grijalva of Arizona, Corrine Brown of Florida, Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, Danny K. Davis of Illinois, and Michael M. Honda and Barbara Lee of California -- all Democrats.

Moonbats, indeed.

I can't believe the insanity of these America-hating dunces! This is not a mature way to respond, I know, but I'm getting so tired of this nonsense!

I hate these people so much. Do they have any idea how humiliating it is for every single citizen of this nation to engage in these tactics? I mean, really. If a European were to confront me with this story, I'd be embarassed. It's not like these are civilian moonbats. These are elected officials of the United States government, and I despise them.

Time to disenfranchise the dearly departed voters of Chicago, various parts of California, and wherever else they congregate. Nothing irritates me more than deceased people sneaking in for last voters' rights.

Do these anti-American idiots resort to faith in the moral authority of the United Nations by default, or do they truly believe that the Turtle Bay Resolution Dispensery has some standing with the American Public? I can't even work up shame for these dolts. They are utterly contemptible.

This would be funny if it weren't so serious.
