Greeks angered by a vicious and protracted financial crisis punished their two main parties in national elections Sunday, with exit polls projecting them both hemorrhaging support and no party gaining enough votes to form a government.
The question of the day, to which we all know the answer (but I want to ask the question anyway), Are the Nannycrats Afraid of Democracy?
Here is a comment someone posted on the Guardian Greek Election Blog
In the past week, as I expected, the ECB, Troika, German officials and others have all warned Greeks to not vote for Alexis Tsipras and his radical-left party Syriza. The question is will it backfire.
I suggest it already has. The pertinent question is whether it backfire enough to matter.
Please consider Greeks rail against 'crude' German editorial.
As late as yesterday I read numerous mainstream media reports that Syriza would win by three to five percent and would need to form an unstable coalition to rule.In contrast, here was my January 19 prediction (and rationale): Expect a Blowout Win by Syriza in Greece.Syriza Trounces New Democracy The final votes are not counted, but exit polls show a blowout, with incumbent party New Democracy going down in flames.
