Now it's the "so-called" election

Juan Cole
I'm just appalled by the cheerleading tone of US news coverage of the so-called elections in Iraq on Sunday.
Stop celebrating everybody, people risking their lives to vote for a government is not actually an election.

It's really hard to know what people like this want to see happen. They complained when there weren't elections and now complain when there are elections. But I forget, all those people lining up, risking their lives to vote, were not taking part in an election. Silly them.
