Fuck you, Taliban

And Fuck You, MSM for letting this take a back seat to Michael Jackson.

Afghanistan is trying to have its second democratic election since the overthrow of the Taliban in 2001, and the remaining Taliban is blowing shit up.  40 people are reported dead so far, including four US soldiers killed by a roadside bomb. 

The Afghan election is another case of more being hopeful that a democratic process will gradually lead to a cultural change than actually liking any of the candidates.  I think it's pretty obvious by the strong reactions against the elections that the Taliban recognizes how dangerous it will be to their survival to allow democracy to take a foothold.
