AP now reports Iraqi voter turnout may be as high as 72%! It must be like a morgue in the newsrooms tonight.
Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and Jim McDermott have never looked more foolish in their entire lives. Teddy needs medical treatment, Kerry should resign immediately after his stupid comments today and McDermott should stay right where he is-- helping Republicans raise money.
