An election only Jimmy could endorse
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, May 30, 2007

I'll bet you missed this one:
President Bashar Assad won another seven years in office, getting 97 percent of the vote in a nationwide referendum on his leadership in which he was the only candidate, according to results announced Tuesday.

Interior Minister Bassam Abdul-Majid said that 95 percent of the country's almost 12 million voters turned out at the polls in Sunday's presidential vote.

Only 19,635 voters said "no" to Assad's re-election, while 253,000 ballots were considered invalid.
Yes, folks, no opposition and complete control over the voting process, but there are those among us who would claim it was a democratic process. And you have to say one thing for Assad - he's consistent:
Assad, a British-educated ophthalmologist, became president shortly after the death of his father, Hafez Assad, in 2000. In his first referendum, he also received 97 percent approval.

In some respects it beats McCain-Feingold though.
