Iraqi Democracy American Style

I'm having another one of my "do I laugh, cry, or just become a smack addict" moments - an all too frequent occurance in the NeoEmpire.

According to Yahoo! News this morning, embezzler, thief, counter-spook, and international fugitive Ahmad Chalabi is one of only two candidates in the running for the Prime Minister post in Iraq. This is, of course, akin to The Doubleduh-Cheney Gang's attempt to recycle Dex Poindexter back into the Pentagramgon. I find it interesting that this comes just a day after Negroponte gets tagged as our spymaster.

Not to worry, of course . . . it'll be a secret vote (unless Joe Gannon can get into the room).
