On The Iraq Elections

I hope that they will go extremely well and that the Iraqis choose widely, though I still think that they are going to have a civil war first and then an Islamic theocracy. This is bad news for women and all non-muslim Iraqis. But I really hope that I am overly pessimistic and that the elections are a great success for everyone. Whatever that means.

Meanwhile, in the other budding theocracy here at home, a wingnut has sought a U.S. House of Representatives passage to a resolution expressing support for the symbols and traditions of Christmas. Because, as you may remember, the wingnuts (who are in power) are oppressed by the rest of us who have nothing better to do with our time than attack Christmas. Sigh.
