The tenative Iraq election results are in:

   • al Sistani (Shia): 48%
   • Kurdish Alliance: 25%
   • Allawi (Shiite): 14%

Bloomberg reports that "Iraq may be run by a coalition government formed around a secular leader such as interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi after a Shiite Muslim coalition failed to win a majority in the National Assembly election."

So they're going to form a government around the guy who got the least votes? This must be the new Bush math. But hey, it's nice to see a government where a minority position is represented, but it's sad that in order to find a government "for the people," you have to move to Iraq, or Yugoslavia.

And remember kids. The United States was created by a bunch of guys who didn't want to pay their taxes.
