In comparison? Today Iraqis voted with an estimated 80% turnout. Cars (with the exception of ambulances and a few others) were banned from the streets and highways in an effort to limit suicide bombings. That's right, 80% of the eligible voters walked to the polls. Walked. Did Not Drive. Do not pass go.
I almost feel ashamed of our 40% or so typical turnout. Yet the MSM still does not see this as a victory for democracy. Howard Dean still believes we have lost. The Democrat Party still criticizes the current administration for having a "wrong headed" policy regarding Iraq. The Democrat Party still says, even though Bush's policy is wrong, we don't have to have an alternate policy.
