Good luck, America!

Who would have believed that the American elections would turn out to be so riveting? Just a few short months ago, George Bush was a shoo-in and the elections were just one big yawn.
In any case, all of us here in the mother country, and in a couple of other places too, I suspect, will be watching the results with bated breath. And now, courtesy of Ha'aretz,
here is the most up-to-date, sophisticated, calculated and precise assessment of the outcome of today's election in America, straight from the table of Military Intelligence commander Maj. Gen. Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash: The Republican party incumbent, George W. Bush, is expected to win - or lose - to the Democratic Party challenger, John Kerry. Or it will be a dead heat.
Ho ho ho. Who said Israel's most serious newspaper doesn't have a sense of humor?

Good luck America indeed. I just voted and I made sure that:

* I understood the directions


* I punched the card such that I did not have any 'hanging chads' on my ballot (thank G-d I'm not a Floridiot).



FWIW, I found no sign of U.N. observers at my polling station.
