What if Iraqis pull the same tricks that Repubs did to stop voters
from the wrong side of the isle? For instance, what if they restricted people with criminal history (i.e., felons), or threw out registration applications that were on "not thick enough" paper? Or if people were turned away from the polls as they went to vote? Our voting system is WORSE than that of 3rd world country. I hope and pray that the Democrats will fight to correct this issue.

1. I think their tricks will be better
I think they'll use guns and bombs.

2. They're more likely to just blow up the polls
Subtlety doesn't get you very far in Iraq nowdays.

3. I'm fairly sure there won't be any court cases
Justice kind of takes care of itself there.
