Possible Iraqi Election Debacle
Iraqi blogs, including Iraq-the-Model, Fayrouz and Iraq Rising seem to feel that the Iraqi election commission has totally corrupted the election, especially in Baghdad. Mohammed and Omar if ITM mention that people who required at least 500 votes to register, people who had enough immediate relatives to get substantial numbers of votes, and probably did much better in actuality, only received a handful as documented so far. This is very worrisome.

BBC reports that the Sunnis are rejecting the results and making threats. "You are playing with fire." As if they're not already making as much trouble as they can.
