The Texas Two-Step Acceptance: President Al-Yawer

In the last hour, the Presidency of Iraq was accepted by Pachachi (for a moment according to the three Bs, BBC, Bremer, & Brahimi), declined by Pachachi, and then deferred by Pachachi to Al-Yawer. Does it matter if the American APPOINTED GC got their wish? No it doesn't. How funny is this? Compounding the illegitimacy of the new interim government and the weakness of Brahimi is the entirely confused two-step acceptance of a largely ceremonial role of President of Iraq.

ps: It does matter a bit that there is somebody critical of US motives and methods as president. Does it offer more legitimacy to the interim government? Perhaps...but a finite and very limited amount.
