Go Figure: The Iranians Are Joining in on the Iraqi Voting!

Not good news from a post on Little Green Footballs: Iran Tampering with Iraqi Election. I'm not beliieving they just think voting is a good thing to do...or...maybe they had some consultants from Chicago.... Afternoon update: Between Rush Limbaugh and Todd Schnitt talk shows, it seems this entire story may be false. Just when you think you can trust the MSM to actually report the truth...anyhow, The Iraqi General in charge of the border guard says the borders have been closed and he has checked with every outpost and there is no confirmation of this report of the tanker full of false ballots, and other MSM news agencies are questioning this report. In the grand scheme of things, I can see the MSM who chooses to believe this report will then "blame it on Bush" and lecture us on how "we" are the cause of all of this and the election results are now suspect (shades of 2000 and 2004 at home - old play, old playbook), so therefore the elected new officials of Iraq will have "stolen the election" and are not to be listened to, since they are now and illegitimate government, thus creating an illision that the insurgents should be justified in continuing their wanton bloodshed....yada, yada, yada....You know, like the MoveOn.Org spokesperson said "we just poured gas on a burning fire" (was that the fire at Ground Zero?). Oh, so much fun, but the best fun will be seeing a new Iraq emerge tomorrow, knowing there is a better way to handle disputes, and it's called the free ballot box. I have faith in the process that has begun, and it looks like an editorial by Jeff Jacoby at the Boston Globe backs me up....
