Next comes the hanging chads

So, I read the Chemist's post on how the Iraqis are learning our form of (mis)representative democracy, which is disturbing enough. And then half an hour later, I read that the U.N. has now condemned Iraqi Government for this change to the constitutional charter.

This must be the flowering democracy that ole Dubya was talking about. See if this story sounds familiar. A majority party, ruled by religious conservatives, impose their will on the rest of the country. Sure sounds like a U.S. style democracy.
