Democrats will celebrate the results of a war they are against.

Now that makes tons of sense, don't it?

Their legacy in Vietnam was voting for a disastrous war and then condemning those they sent to fight it.

This time around, they can proudly claim to support Iraqi democracy while being against the actions which brought it about.

Too bad the label "Know Nothing Party" us taken.

Did you hear the woman on Brit's show this evening.

Paraphrasing she said, "and to those who do not think our country and President Bush did the right thing, can GO TO HELL."

At least they are consistent. It's exactly like peaceniks using their American liberties to protest ANY war that the US is involved, even though the US fought wars to give them their liberties.

I loved what the eldery Iraqi women said after she finished voting today in America. Quoting her: "I thank America and President Bush, everyone that doesn't like what America and President Bush has done for Iraq can all go to HELL."

Iraq is stained today with ink, not blood. Freedom marches on, what a beautiful inspiring sight.

Someone better get a copy of that woman making the comment. It would make a damn good campaign ad next year before the elections.

Thanks...I was close to what she said. Thanks for the clip...I was going to watch Brit again later tonight to get it down correctly. Opps...

This week is making the dembos, and the MSM sick. It's way to hard for the MSM to cover this up. The whole world will have to one more time see the true and real results of what America and Bush has done for the Iraqi people. ;o)

-I was sort of thinking the same thing, only instead of using this woman's statement in a campaign, the RNC should should use this actual woman and their new spokesperson, "Betty Dawisha-Iraqi Voter".

I'm sure that Marxists around the world are saddened and green with envy at having someone like Bush do this sort of good in the world, even though it's not in their nature to do something like this for the Iraqi people. All they know how to do is enslave, and thank God that there are good people in the world who will face them down and liberate people despite how loudly the Totalitarians may howl.

I don't know about things where you are, but it's funny how the radio news, for example, is making the Iraqi vote seem like just another news story.

I'm reminded of the earlier vote. In the early morning, CNN had constant coverage, showing empty polling places. By evening, they were on to some other story, once there was actual NEWS to cover in Iraq. Of course they covered the election, but it was amusing how they dropped out of wall to wall coverage once the voters started showing up in large numbers. Guess that wasn't news...

I remember a FReep in DC a few years back when Dave Delegge, Electric Strawberry, and I saw a bunch of people protesting across the Mall from us, we went across the street to FReep them and they were the Free Iraqi's, a group unheard of.

Dave Delegge, checked in with Kristinn and they were invited over to partisipate in our Rally, seems like an age.

There is some military maxim that says something like "Feed the army and fear no evil."

I understand the sight of purple fingers makes MSM reporters ill, so they were trying to avoid the "democracy" buy. ;-)

Me too, but let's remember that the f-ing French cheered our arrival, and the Germans celebrated Reagan's "tear-down-this-wall," and look at their gratitude today. This is necessary, and we would have to do it even if they didn't particularly like us, but don't expect them to be loving allies in 20 years. They may be---hope they are---but history shows people have short memories.

Iraqi military and police forces can start voting today, along with Iraqi nationals in other countries. The general population of Iraq will vote Thursday.
