This could be interesting

In not a good way.
Darth Sadr is ordering his minions to remove themselves from the Iraqi government.

Al-Sadr's ministers will "withdraw immediately from the Iraqi government and give the six Cabinet seats to the government, with the hope that they will be given to independents who represent the will of the people," said Nassar al-Rubaie, head of al-Sadr's bloc, reading a statement from the cleric.

OK, why?
He's upset that his terrorists are being killed and arrested by American and Iraqi troops, sure.

But why give up Cabinet seats?

Ahhh, taking their lessons in democracy from our Democrats, I see...
Al-Sadr's followers hold six positions in the 37-member Cabinet, and 30 seats in the 275-member parliament. Monday's order would affect only the Cabinet members.

"We will have a major role in working on a timetable in parliament. This will be our message to the government," al-Rubaie said. "Setting a timetable for the withdrawal will be done in parliament."

Other legislators said the withdrawal was likely to further destabilize al-Maliki's already shaky hold on power.

"The withdrawal will affect the performance of the government, and will weaken it," said Abdul-Karim al-Ouneizi, a Shiite legislator from the Dawa Party-Iraq Organization. Al-Ouneizi is from a different branch of the party al-Maliki heads.

One of the six, Saad Taha al-Hashimi, Iraq's minister of state for provincial affairs, sought to reassure supporters Monday that the Sadrists would remain influential.

"This does not mean the Sadrist movement will cease contributing to society," he told reporters. "The movement, as it always has, will remain in society and the government to offer what is best and to push forward the political process," al-Hashimi said.

Yep, Nancy- way to go! Show just how a democracy works when you want to actively make your country loose. I see they're even learning their talikng points about political process and contributing to society...just like all good America haters.

But still, why give up power?
Nancy must be chewing on her office carpet right about now...
