YOU CAN'T WATCH TV UNTIL YOU EAT ALL OF YOUR DEMOCRACY!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Continued corruption in Iraq could damage efforts to create a democracy there, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Tuesday, adding that it is up to the Iraqis to seize control and take more responsibility for their country.

"It's true that violence, corruption and criminality continue to pose challenges in Iraq" and are "so corrosive of democracy," he told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. -CNN

Ya think? It's like giving your poor relations a Ming Vase, and then stopping by to find out they are using it for a piss pot. Giving the gift of democracy doesn't preclude the fact that some people have no idea how to use it, or want it to begin with.
