Top Ten Kos Kidz Reactions to Today’s Elections In Iraq
Okay, folks, let’s jump right in:
…[I]t’s precisely what BushCo is trying to do. Distract us from the violence and the
deaths, of both U.S. and coalition forces and the Iraqi people, by staging
these elections and giving us these photo ops.
I won’t believe the numbers anyway. After the last election took 3 weeks
to finalise the votes, I didn’t trust those results either.
Earlier this week, on Air America, I heard about a truck of ballots being intercepted on
it’s [sic] way from Iran. With Iran & the U.S. both wanting a desired
outcome, I don’t think it matters what the Iraqis want. Either Iran or the U.S. is going to win this election, votes be damned.
I want to know if Diebold had machines set up to count the votes.
The paradigm I operate under is that the forces Bush has
marshaled to allow him to use my money to terrorize a foreign population and
get American soldiers killed and maimed are the exact same ones which are
staging the election and will oversee not only the results but the actions of
If the Iraqis are successful in their democratic endeavor,
perhaps they could send consultants to Ohio and Florida.
more iraqis are voting than americans voted in the last pres

I don’t believe a f***ing word of what the New York Times
tells me about election day in Iraq.
last time? The anecdotes of people walking miles to get to the polls? Reports
of unexpectedly high Sunni turnout? The dawn of democracy?
Repugs pointing to those reports and waving purple fingers at us?
propaganda, in the mold of Judith Miller.
This is just theater. All completely meaningless, and woe
to the suckers who buy into this BS.
These elections are nothing more than a prop for the bush thugs. No election
that was initiated, designed, engineered, and carried out by a foreign
occupation power has any legitimacy, here or elsewhere. None. Period.
If Uzbekistan invaded the US, toppled the government, installed its hand-picked puppets, then ran through the motions of several rounds of voting, would the regime that resulted have any legitimacy whatsoever? Of course not. It would be laughed at.
This so-called election is utter bullsh**, nothing more than photo ops and PR props.
Has any reporter asked anyone in the administration [sic] why the f*** Iraq has had even 1 election if the country can’t even employ 60% of the people?! If 50 people are dying a day. Can’t [sic] one a**hole just ask the f***ing question?!?
I had a realization today while driving to work listening to all the talking heads blather on about Iraqis voting.
GIVE. A. SH**. ABOUT. THIS.
Was it worth half a trillion of our (children’s) wealth and 2140 of our young people? 30,000 to 100,000 civilian "collateral damage"?
NOTE: Those of you who think I am shooting fish in a barrel with this occasional feature: you’re right. Those who think I use it to tar all liberals: you’re wrong. There is one particular species known as the ‘progressive’ that I am taking aim at.
