Iraqi Democrats Redux

I'd like to recommend Inside Iraq a blog written by Iraqi journalists in McClatchy's Baghdad Bureau whose complete names have been withheld for security reasons.
Before your next dinner party, I suggest you bone up on Iraqi Democrats:

As a matter of fact if you want to be the speaker of any Iraqi political party you have to be either the founder of the party or his son. Maybe you will have a chance to be the speaker if your grandfather was the speaker but you have to wait for long long time.
After all of that, many want us to believe that these political parties will fight to protect democracy in Iraq even when they are not practicing democracy in their own parties.
To all Iraqi political parties… You can not give what you don't have … you can not.
