Spin Alert - Something to think about

Shrill chest-beaters are wailing about how "thousands" of Sunnis are boycotting the new constitutional process in Iraq.

Keep in mind that there are around 5 MILLION Sunnis in Iraq.

Do the *%#@$%'ing math. Sounds kind of like another "Million" Mom March."

The reality of it, as heard from guys on the CENTCOM staff in Iraq, is that the Sunnis realize what a blunder it was to boycott the first election, and are rather sheepishly acknowledging that the future lies in participating in the process. Peacefully.
