Mideast democracy

Hoo, boy, what a fine kettle of fish.

Palestinians democratically elect the Hamas, a “terrorist” (or “freedom fighter,” your choice) organization to represent themselves?

And the most recent rationalization for invading Iraq is that we needed to bring democracy to the Mideast?

(“NO, NO, not THAT kind of democracy!”)

Hoo, boy, if you live long enough, you see it all.
