THE FAHDIL BROTHERS (MOHAMMED Y ALI), of the great Iraq The Model blog have just announced their candidacy for the Iraqi National Assembly, for the Iraqi Pro-Democracy Party they founded some time ago.
Considering the petty politics, absurd quarrels, manipulation and demagogics in the supposedly more mature democracies all over the Western countries, it's refreshing to see such enthusiasm for helping their country, which g*d knows it needs it.
It almost makes me feel like getting the Iraqi nationality so that I can vote for them.
I don't know if there are any campaign financing rules and whether they allow foreign contributions, but they list ways to help.
Jeff Jarvis, who has played a big role at helping the guys heard and known all over, comments.
