So Hamas won the election.

Whoop-tee-f***ing-doo. Since I'm assuming that Diebold didn't sell the Palestinian Authority voting machines, one has to assume that the vote was somewhat accurate (especially since the opposition party won), and that in fact, the Palestinian people wanted Hamas to win. Since apparently we're trying to encourage democracy in the Middle East, we should allow it the people of Palestine to deal with the consequences of their actions (I'm not going to speculate upon what those might be), and not get our boxers all bunched up about the fact that it didn't go the way we wanted to. There's even a chance Hamas could deradicalize now that it has actual power - people like to stay in power. Besides, Israel/Palestine is none of our business, much as Pat Robertson would disagree.
