Who's the moneybags?

Just as I said that there was nothing worth saying about the Ukranian election - here is something, a Guardian report on the opposition's American links. In case your wondering the the Guardian approves of this, even if their reporter is not so sure.

The fact that the exit polls were financed by the same people who financed the opposition campaign is notable. Even I was not cynical enough to assume that. Exit Pollsters for Kerry wouldn't have been taken seriously.

One thing I would say is that although the figures don't sound much in impoverished Eastern Europe a dollar goes a great deal further than here.

The last line is memorable:

The places to watch are Moldova and the authoritarian countries of central Asia.

We will with the same amused detachment.
