Democracy in Afghanistan? Who cares?

Not the mainstream media, that's for sure. Have you noticed that the few stories you did see or read about the Afghan elections focused on either the "chaos" that was sure to erupt (which it didn't) or the "irregularities" that supposedly caused many of Hamid Karzai's opponents to drop out of the race (not that it mattered, they had no chance regardless)? Another shameful punt by the US and international press. I guess it's not news if it could help W get reelected, right?
