Be Careful What You Wish For

So the current Administration holds up Turkey as the quintessential democratic government that should be a model for Middle East governments.

Funny, they never talk about the other democratically-elected government in the Middle East in that way.  You know, the Hamas-led, democratically-elected government of Palestine.  I guess it’s just not convenient.

I think the Bush Administration’s opinion of Democracy is not so democratic as it is to be “just like us”.
