Leftists Against Democracy - John Kerry on today's voting in Iraq:
"No one in the United States should try to overhype this election."People in a country formerly ruled by a homicidal lunatic are taking control of their own lives and choosing their own leaders. What does it say about the moral depravity of the left that their reaction to this historic event is bitterness and anger.
Oliver Willis is practically choking on his own bile, calling the election illegitimate. If a Democrat wants to become a leader within the party, the next few days are the perfect opportunity. Instead of taking the Kerry road and furrowing their brow over this amazing day, Democrats should be celebrating the fact that democracy has come to a country once denied it. This anger in the fringe left provides any Democrat who wants to take it a perfect opportunity to show leadership. Now is the time for any centrists left in the Democrat party to denounce the angry left.
Will any of them actually do it?
UPDATE: Headline on MSNBC - "Surprising Turnout." Maybe to you, guys. And for that, you have my pity.
UPDATE II: More from Mr. Willis:
I never made any prediction about voter turnout. What I do remember is the talk about how capturing the Hussein bros. would stop the insurgency, then the capture of Hussein would do it, then the handover would... and oh yeah, Bin Laden is still on the loose. Remember him?Mmmmmmmm...how's that bile taste, Oliver?
UPDATE III: Corrected the John Kerry quote. Forgot the words 'in the United States.' Bitter moron.
