UN: Hey, Check out the Democracy in Iraq!

Everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon, including UN secretary general, Ban Ki Moon.

Interestingly, even Obama recently congratulated the Iraqi people on their achievement. How he can do this with a straight face after criticizing GW Bush for entering Iraq is beyond me though. Could one have happened without the other?

But in the spirit of reconciliation and in the words of Rocky Balboa,

If I can change, and you can change, we all can change!

Congratulations to both the UN and Obama for understanding that democracy is actually worth celebrating, particularly in any middle eastern country. Fortunately, there was one man who already understood this several years ago.

Now we just need Reid and Pelosi to figure it out!
