The anti-Fatah Intifada

The new political arm of Hamas (How do you say Sinn Fein in Arabic??) appears to have won a decisive victory in the Palestinian elections on Wednesday. Said Alleged President Bush, "I remind people, the elections, democracy is, can open up the world's eyes to reality by listening to the people," and "You'll hear a lot of people saying, 'Well, aren't we surprised at the outcome — or this, that, or the other'; if there is corruption, I'm not surprised if people say, Let's get rid of corruption." Yes, indeed, Mr. Bush, let's get rid of corruption. Excellent suggestion. We'll keep that in mind for November.
