How dare Americans vote for a conservative!

The Independent's take on Arnold's win:

A Hollywood triumph, but a depressing day for the democratic ideal

Yes, for the Left voting for your preferred candidate is a failure of democracy.

Buried at the very bottom of this article:

"Most Iraqis approve of the removal of Saddam. Last month, Gallup polled residents in Baghdad and found that 62% thought the suffering they have endured was worth it to live in a post-Saddam era. 67% thought that their lives will be better five years from now."

Iraqis saying they appreciate being liberated - must be a failure of that "democratic ideal".
