Jen at The Greatest Jeneration  makes note that a number of Sunni clerics are calling for their flocks to ignore the upcoming election, claiming they would be ‘disenfranchised’. Muses Jen:
Why do the Iraqi Sunnis sound so much like our Democrats? When votes don’t go their way, they act as if they’re ‘disenfranchised.’
Boycotting the Jan. 30 election and thereby not getting their own representatives elected to the new Iraqi assembly will only hurt the minority Sunnis more.”
True, Jen, but it also sounds like a few libertarians I’ve heard from on the subject of elections, too. Sadly, they don’t see the similarlity, either.
