Ok, This Is Weird

Have you seen the pictures of Viktor Yushchenko? He’s the opposition candidate running (again) for election in Ukraine. If you haven’t been paying much attention, the recent election in Ukraine was riddled with fraud and abuse. It appears that the incumbent rigged the system to retain power, after which the parliament immediately held a “no confidence” vote. They have since decided to hold the election again. But I digress…

In these photos, you can see a breathtaking alteration in the appearance of Yushchenko from July until recently. He fell ill in September and there is some speculation that he was poisoned. I don’t know what the truth is here, but something is definitely fishy.
