Good news from Iraq? Who’d ever have thought! Arthur Chrenkoff presents a two-week supercompilation of cheery Iraqi news, including vast campaign and election day coverage.
Meanwhile, Jeff Jarvis detects a curious lack of celebration among US leftoid sites. What’s up with that? The same tumbleweedy sound can be heard among local lefties. Why, they seem almost as withdrawn as they were the day Saddam was captured.
Well, not all of them. Here, a Democratic Underground funster responds to the view that the elections were “a resounding success�?:
Until Iraqi insurgents deliver a pillow case full of fingers dipped in ink to the nearest American commander because that’s what I would do if I were an insurgent leader
Don’t ever give up your dream, little guy! Another happy fellow finds artistic inspiration in the murder of Iraqi voters; tee hee! Guy got blowed up!
And these people used to complain about “disenfranchised” voters in Florida …
UPDATE. Lefty Mark Bahnisch speaks for his fellows:
I doubt that I want to say very much about the current situation in Iraq actually
Yeah. It’s too good.
UPDATE II. John Podhoretz:
There are literally millions of Americans who are unhappy today because millions of Iraqis went to the polls yesterday. And why? Because this isn’t just a success for Bush. It’s a huge win. It’s a colossal vindication.
It’s a big fat gigantic winning vindication of the guy that the Moores and Kennedys and millions of others still can’t believe anybody voted for.
And they know it.
And it’s killing them.
UPDATE III. Another instructive guide to left-wing election opinion.
