Pray for Mexico/updated

Posted by Charles II on July 1, 2012

Update. Actual results, starting at 6PM Central, here:

or, via your favorite corporate behemoth, here:


The kids have put together a resistance movement called YoSoy132, a reference to the Atenco massacre. What looked like a sure thing for the PRI candidate Enrique Pena Nieto now looks like merely a likely thing for P-nieto.

You can follow what’s going on in the election today here.

There are plenty of reports of dirty politics. The cops arresting someone for recording election day bribes. Pencils being handed out at voting booths to make erasures possible. Stolen ballots. Anonymous Mexico claims to have detected electoral irregularities.

Mexico really does deserve better. As Atrios would say, The kids are alright.

It’s just the adults who suck.
