The Ugly Ukrainian


It is official.
VIENNA, Austria -- Dioxin poisoning caused the disfiguring illness afflicting Ukraine opposition presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko, doctors at an Austrian hospital have said.

Doctors told a news conference Saturday they suspect a "third party" administered the poison, possibly by putting it in Yushchenko's soup.
This is one of the oddest stories I ever remember. Did they think that people would not vote for him if he was ugly? If you are going to poison him, why not with something that will kill him?

UPDATE: Was Arafat poisoned too?
