Sunnis, Shiites threaten to boycott legislature

What I wouldn't give for Democrats to boycott government here in America! Hey, one can dream, right? Anyway, from the AP:
Dozens of Sunni Arab and secular Shiite groups threatened to boycott Iraq's new legislature Thursday if complaints about tainted voting are not reviewed by an international body.

A representative for former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi described the Dec. 15 vote as "fraudulent" and the elected lawmakers "illegitimate."
That last paragraph sounds like Democrats did indeed make their way into Iraq! Aside from Baghdad Jim McDermott and John "Our troops can't win, and I should know, 'cuz I used to be one" Murtha's trips, I mean.

As for the "reviewed by an international body", how about the UN? They've been such great friends to the Iraqi people, haven't they?
