Iraqi Election III

For those of you only paying attention to the mainstream media, the Iraqis are at the polls for their THIRD free election this year. Turnout is expected to exceed 70%. Gateway Pundit (link in title) has a roundup of coverage. Iraqi blogger Hammorabi is ecstatic.

And the Beeb's headline of its story on Iraqi voting quotes a voter's proclamation that "This is stability, at last." More important, this summation from BBC reporter Hugh Sykes in Baghdad:

In Muthanna, in Baghdad, it has certainly been the day of unity and celebration that President Jalal Talabani said he hoped for.
