The Airing of Grievances

Finally, a ray of optimism from Quagmire 2004, as Ghazi al-Yawar is named president of Iraq. A consensus pick for a largely ceremonial role, Yawar is a Sunni with Shiite and Kurdish support sans the stench of CPA/US endorsement that had so damaged favorite Adnan Pachachi.
One superficial downside? This move likely reduces the frequency of hearing President Bush uttering the word "Pachachi".
