Mark your calendars, folks. The big day is rapidly approaching. Forget about all the brouhaha surrounding DeLay and Miers. That stuff will work itself out one way or the other. On the other hand, on October 15th the Iraqis go to the polls to vote on their new Constitution. Though I prefer to get my info from other than Reuters, looks as though — despite yesterday's report of all the political parsing going on regarding the subject at hand — the men and women in the streets are ready to put an overwhelming stamp of approval on this important piece of parchment.
Go for it! But they hardly seem to require my encouragement.
Perhaps the digit adjacent to the index finger should be the one purple—inked? Just to let the rest of the world know what the Iraqis think of all the negative comment on their admittedly difficult situation? Might be satisfying for the Iraqis to use this occasion to let the Baathists, Syrians, Iranian Theocrats, Saudis and Abu Musab al—Zarqawi know what they really think of them.
Just a thought.
