I haven’t ranted politically in a while, but this is just too good to pass up:

According to the Washington Post, the White House is downplaying the importance of turnout in the upcoming (?) Iraqi elections, saying that the process is what’s important. As one senior election official said (this is the great part), “I would . . . really encourage people not to focus on numbers, which in themselves don’t have any meaning, but to look on the outcome and to look at the government that will be the product of these elections.” (Emphasis added)

Of course, the Bush White House knows all too well that numbers don’t mean anything to the outcome of an election…
