A Riddle

Q. What do Ted Kennedy and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi have in common?

A. Neither of them wanted this woman to vote:

Hey Zarqawi... Better luck next time.

And you absolutely must read this story. It shows both the good and the bad. We need to keep both in mind.

“Am I scared? Or course I’m not scared. This is my country.”
"This is democracy,” Abbasi said. “This is the first day I feel freedom."
Abed Hunni, a stooped, whiskered man walked an hour with his wife to reach a polling site in Musayyib. “God is generous to give us this day,” he said.
“We fought terrorists who took shelter in a cemetery behind the polling center, we captured some and found weapons hidden in graves. It was all worth it. This is great.”
Crowds burst into impromptu demonstrations, shouting, “No to dictatorship. Yes to democracy,” and “Long live freedom.”

Meanwhile, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry are hitting the sauce pretty hard.
