Not Democratic

I know, I know. I don't actually care if the people of Afghanistan live under democracy or some weird Tajik overlordship but can we please stop talking about how we've brought democracy? The Americans are now dictating how the cabinet should be selected. I wonder if the Bush would convene a constitutional convention to select his secretary of Agriculture? Thought not.

And please let's not talk about bringing democracy to Iraq or Saudi Arabia. Democracy only thrives in willing soil.
