Memory Check

As Iraqi parliamentary elections are now only two days away (or 1.5 for gentle readers actually in Iraq), SWNID, prompted by the essential James Taranto, offers the reminder that the first Iraqi elections, to select the provisional body that drafted the constitution, were anticipated by many pundits, with, shall we say, utter dread. To wit: the compendium of political cartoons anticipating that event, found here, shows what our German friends call a Tendenz.

We invite gentle readers to click and scroll through several pages to see what is now, with hindsight, unintentionally funny.
