The March of Freedom Has Begun - it's called Democracy!Topics: Iraq Elections
The Iraq elections - here's two great snips that sum it all up!
1. For months, we've been told (by the left and "their" media) that the Iraqis are not well-suited for democracy. Today, the Iraqi people delivered their response(Paren. added)
The national turnout in Iraq's historic elections is estimated at 72 percent of registered voters by 2 p.m. (11 a.m. British time), a far higher figure than most expected, the country's Electoral Commission says.
Officials told a news conference turnout was 90 percent or more in many Shi'ite areas. The polls are due to close at 5 p.m.

2. The man replacing the mayor of Baghdad -- who was assassinated for his pro-American loyalties -- says he is not worried about his ties to Washington.
In fact, he'd like to erect a monument to honor President Bush in the middle of the city.
"We will build a statue for Bush," said Ali Fadel, the former provincial council chairman. "He is the symbol of freedom." (emphasis added)
It's time for Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and and their friends in the left to say they were wrong and gee we are sorry that we were such jerks about mis-judging freedom's call.
