Economist on the 2000 election


I was watching Fahrenheit 9/11 last night, and recalled a leader in the Economist in the aftermath of the election that pointed out all the weird things going on—as pointed out in another leader:

All of the supreme justices who backed Mr Bush were appointed by Republicans; the wife of one is helping the president-elect choose his staff; Florida is governed by his brother; its election was certified by his campaign chairwoman.

But I recall one where the leader even pointed out that, had this happened in any other country, the UN observers surely would’ve judged the election to be rigged, and call for a re-relection.

Can anyone find that article today?
