The White House has set the date for elections in Iraq for the end of this month. Previously, they touted them as a major achievement, the turning point in Iraqi politics.

It is now the latest thing that <a href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=564&e=6&u=/nm/20050116/ts_nm/iraq_usa_expectations_dc">they are backpedaling on</a>.

In other news, Bush declares that his massive (51 percent), decisive (admittably, of the largest voter turnout in decades, which means more people did turn out FOR him than turned out AGAINST him) victory ratifies every single last thing <a href="http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/washpost/20050116/ts_washpost/a12450_2005jan15&e=3">he's done</a> to this point.

This is Donkeys and Elephants material at its best, IMHO. Discuss.

No, many people voted on a single issue relevant to them, disregarding all others. The issue in question is variable.

The "single issue" seemed in most cases to be abortion. And the fact that a disturbingly large portion of the American populace seems to think that Bush is some sort of prophet, if not God.

What scares me about Bush's second term is that, even if he only one by 2%, he may as well have one by 99. It's not as if we'll hold a public referendum for all of his policies...

*sigh*
