Vote AND die: elections in Iraq

Today, gunmen shot and killed Kassim Imhawi, the director of a Baghdad election center. Al Jazeera has the story.

Despite this latest deadly bit of election news, Prime Minister Allawi, the Iraqi puppet of our American puppet, Li'l Georgie the Talking President, assures his people that the elections will go forward as planned.

It's just that not that many people will vote. Which is fine with Mr. Allawi, as he'd like to "win." And if some voters have to be killed in the process, well...shit happens.
