I am not arguing that one would be prevented from adopting a
legitimacy concept where not all laws are OK even though they are
approved through a constitutional mechanism by somebody elected by a
majority of votes, nor that the only way to measure "consent" is a
purely arithmetic electoral ballot.

What I object to is the hypocrisy of claiming that one's prob with
Amahdinejad is that he may have in fact obtained only 53% rather than
62%, when in fact a coup against him, Algeria-style, would be
supported even if he had 95%, the supposed "will of the Iranian
people" being totally immaterial to that position.
