A Canadian, A Swede and an EU'er meet in a bar...

It's official: the Afghanistan elecions are settled. Votes are yet to be counted - and that will take a few weeks to collect the ballots from the remote areas and count them all - but Karzai has won.

Hpw do I know? Simple, the opposition knows:

... The panel will comprise a Canadian diplomat, an election specialist from Sweden and a third member yet to be named by the European Union.
Ethnic Tajik candidate Yunus Qanooni has joined several other candidates -- including Haji Mohammed Mohaqeq -- in agreeing to accept the findings of the independent commission.
They'll meet, exchange rolodexes and move on, cuz there's not much more for them to do. This is truly historic, you know.
