The only way to enact an extremist agenda in the US… for now…

Recess appointments and executive orders to ram through any unpopular candidates and legislation that can’t be approved by bribing or misleading members of Congress. Is this the kind of democracy Bush is “exporting” to the Middle East? Yes, it’s a rhetorical question. (The links are just the most prominent examples that came to mind; I’ll gladly accept other suggestions.) Fittingly for a Bush democracy, Iraq’s emerging constitution will elevate Islamic law and could erode women’s rights to the PRE-Saddam era. Is this what the Bushies had in mind? Actually, it depends.
