Iraqis want a religious leader--not Allawi

Looks like Bush's puppet, Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, is poised to lose the election in Iraq. According to a U.S.-financed poll by the International Republican Institute (now that's a scary-sounding group), if an election were held today in Iraq, leaders of its religious parties would win.

This is a real bummer for the Bush administration, which views a victory by Iraq's religious parties as the worst-case scenario. They think a secular government led by moderates is critical, because the new government will oversee writing a new Iraqi constitution.

We think a secular government led by moderates is critical, too. We hope we can get one of those here soon...
