A Democratic Underground operative exposes BushCo’s sinister Iraq elections ploy:
All we’ve heard the past few weeks was how bad the violence was going to be, how Iraqi turnout was in question, how much of a disaster this was going to be, et al. In other words, we were lured into believing this was going to be a mess, but the reality is it wasn’t so bad. There was violence, but there was also a huge voter turnout … These guys are adept at making us believe that all will be a disaster, but when the reality shows itself to be not-that-bad, they look better in the aftermath than they deserve.
