Kaus and Sullivan Sparing Over Iraq

AS responds to Kaus (Thursday January 27, 2005 10:14 P.M. post) criticisms.

AS offers these numbers to guage "success" in the Iraq elections.
Here are my criteria: over 50 percent turnout among the Shia and Kurds, and over 30 percent turnout for the Sunnis. No massive disruption of voting places; no theft of ballots. Fewer than 500 murdered.
We shall see. Wonder what the Bushies have in their internal memos? I suppose something like that might not get put on paper?
