    Haiti just completed its two-round presidential election process.

    These were the final results from the first round election in 2010:

    One of Haiti's most popular entertainers was elected president in a landslide, according to results announced Monday.

    It appears that Haitians believed that only a political outsider like Mr. Martelly could change the country's direction.

    "Martelly's victory implies a rejection of the political class that has both governed and been in the opposition," said Robert Fatton Jr., a Haiti expert and professor in the University of Virginia's Department of Politics.

    "Martelly captured the mood of the voters by cleverly using his 'bad boy' image to enhance his status as the ultimate 'outsider' who symbolized change," he told Reuters.

    “Micky is a political animal, and the political establishment failed to realize how much of a phenomenon he is,” said Garry Pierre-Pierre, editor and publisher of The Haitian Times, a New York-based newspaper. “This is a man who literally can get a million people to move to his groove.”

    Hope these motherfuckers get buried under the landslide they're manufacturing.

    4. Wyclef Jean,

      If you had taken those French & Creole classes like the CIA asked you to...you could have been the one ruling over 9 million people with only 15% of the vote.

      By the way, you've worked with her. Does Shakira actually have an oral fixation? Or is she just really into singing?

      I'm not a deviant.
