Another great quote

I don't think that Iraq will have a perfect election.

And if I recall looking back at our own election four years ago it wasn't perfect either.
-- General John Abizaid, on NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, via Liberal Oasis.

I never realized how thoughtful we are here in America: Lowering our electoral standards so that Iraq can meet them. Makes you proud, doesn't it?

Meanwhile, on ABC's This Week, Colin Powell said that the U.S. will be overtly supporting certain candidates in the Afghan and Iraqi elections, and refuses to discuss whether we'll be covertly supporting them as well. I wonder if bombing the candidates we don't like will be considered overt or covert.
