Voting for Ayatollah Sistani. I heard Sen. John Warner saying yesterday in a Senate hearing that Iraqis voted in large numbers to show support for "freedom" and "democracy". No, Senator. Iraqis voted in large numbers (in most areas but not all) to show support for an Ayatollah who never left his house in 6 years, and who considers love between a man and a woman to be morally impermissable. (More on that later--I have been reading his fatwas lately).
