We really should give Bush credit for this

AP: "Anti-Syrian candidates concede in Lebanon"
Anti-Syrian candidates apparently suffered major losses in a third round of elections Sunday to fill nearly half the seats in parliament, a senior opposition leader conceded after a campaign that led to some surprising alliances.

Of course, I'm sure there'll be some too stubborn and hate-filled to acknowledge the New Day Rising in the Middle East.

UDPATE: Welcome Eschatonians, and thanks for the linkage! Check out the further musings of a scabby, dead-eyed hunchback.

LATER UPDATE: Upon further reflection, it's hard to know what's really going on in Lebanon, considering that I have no idea how their political system works or have any background into that society. Very perplexing, and I think the reporting mirrors this uncertainty. No one seems to know what any of this means. This guy is even arguing that a guy like Aoun allying with pro-Syrian factions is a good thing, presumably because a large, diaffected minority of Syrian-ophiles would be a bigger problem. That strikes me as silly, but any help would be appreciated.
