Can anyone explain to me…

· Iraq

…without diving into conspiracy (already got that covered — thanks…) why it might be that the election results in Iraq are getting close to zero media attention?
A week ago this was the election of the century. Anybody remember purple fingers?
I get that they must still be counting the votes, but in this 24-hour news world, how can it be that we aren’t getting nightly updates of how things are looking, when the results will be in, what the implications are?
Have we all had our memories cleaned? Or am I just missing something here…?
