Let's see if I understand this democracy stuff. The U.S. Supreme Court appoints George W. Bush as president, who appoints Paul Bremer as head of the Iraqi Coalition Provisional Authority, who appoints members to 18 committees who will appoint delegates to caucuses, who will appoint a transitional Iraqi parliament who will appoint a prime minister, who will appoint other ministers to form a government.

Is that really democracy?
