Brit Hume reports:
After yesterday’s landmark parliamentary elections in Afghanistan, some European media are reporting a “sharp drop in turnout” from last year’s presidential elections there. The BBC says turnout was down more than 20 percent, and the Scotsman newspaper says, “evidence that turnout was sharply lower than in last year’s presidential vote undermined celebrations of the polling as a key step toward stability.”
Undermine? What? This is a great sign of stability. The Afghans are getting as apathetic about their elections as we are.
