Elections in Iraq:Coverage and Truth

It's interesting to note the contrast between the way the Iraqis are talking about the election; and the way the stooges of their enemies talk about the election.  The problem, of course, is the boundless self-delusion shown in most political screeds (the header of the article gives a good example), and the ridicule which results, leaving the "Sunni Iraqi Resistance" a little puzzled. 

Don't others see them the way they see themselves?

Some do.  Hence Mr. Escobar's article, with its many misstatements of fact.  But those who do not are generally responding with laughter at the clowns they have become.  Sure, clowns with guns and bombs.  Terrifying clowns.  But clowns nonetheless.
