When I heard about this provision:


. . .Fazel Ahmed Manawi told The Associated Press. "In the constitution there is an article that says things that go against Islam are not allowed."


I knew there'd be trouble. "Islam" can be twisted into some hideous forms.

"God and the Prophet said women should not sing."


WOW. I'd like someone to point out to me where in the Quran this is. It is extremely diffcult for me to buy this horse-manure. Even the Prophet Mohammad's wife use to teach & instruct. Then the extremists came along and said that women should be hidden away, should not be educated & most certainly cannot teach/sing/...

I believe the plaintiff is actually claiming to have won this election on account of having won the national popular vote. Perhaps he is seeking relief on the grounds that this horrible electoral college system is unconstitutional? Or perhaps on the ground that when he says 'I won' everyone ought to take his word for it?.....
Problem is, the other chappie also thought he won. Quite a quandery....

According to US election laws, your winning the popular vote doesn't count if the other person wins the electoral votes. I think Al Gore was claiming that the Florida ballot was very confusing and he contended that some fo those who wanted to vote for voted for the other chappie because the ballot was confusing. Peronally, I thought this was specious reasoning.
