Killing the New MSM Meme

I've been reading the coverage, and watching the pundits. This appears to be the new line of dissent:

"Yes, Iraqis voted today in massive numbers. But voting isn't democracy."

I agree. But that's also like saying that the best college basketball team didn't win the NCAA championship. It may be true, but they ARE wearing the rings. Wanna see my purple finger?
