The Dog Ate My Good Excuse

Mircea Geoana, who was defeated in his bid to become President of Romania, claims he lost unfairly. No, he doesn’t think winner Traian Basescu stuffed the ballot box, prevented people from voting, or deliberately glued hanging chads on ballots to confuse people. Instead he claims Basecu used an occult “violet flame,” negative energy generated by purple ties and sweaters, and the help of a parapsychologist the Romanian Association of Transpersonal Psychology (RAT-P) says specializes in deep mind control, clairvoyance and hypnotic trances to win. It makes you long for the days of good sportsmanship, graceful losers, and explanations like “The dog ate the ballot box” or “Sarah Palin was on the ticket,” doesn’t it?
