Pot, meet kettle 

Do-gooder Colin Powell steps into the Ukrainian mess:

Secretary of State Colin Powell said today the United States does not consider legitimate the results of elections in Ukraine, which the opposition says was marred by fraud.

He challenged leaders of the former Soviet bloc nation "to decide whether they are on the side of democracy or not."

"We cannot accept this result as legitimate, because it does not meet international standards and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and credible reports of fraud and abuse," Powell said.
(via Houston Chronicle)

Fine word, legitimate!

Of course, US elections don't meet international standards either (back), and after Florida 2000, have been shown to be marked by massive fraud.
