Yesterday was the big day for the Iraqi constitution to be adopted, thereby heralding the birth of wonderful new era of peace, love, and democracy in Iraq.

Except, well, they had to put it off for another week. The new deadline is August 22. Feel free to place your bets on whether or not that will happen. My money's on "Not a chance in hell."

This is a perfect example of why despotism is a superior form of government: There's no need for pesky constitutions or other such nonsense because what you say is the law of the land. And if you change your mind overnight, so be it. There's no need to worry about what's legal and what's not, because you--as the tyrant--get to decide!

I miss those days.
