Iraqi lawmakers need a break

In honor of my now complete and impromptu weeklong break from posting here on Why We Worry (sorry!), I’m posting about another ill-timed vacation. The Iraqi Parliament has decided that there are no pressing issues facing the country, so they might as well take a month off:

“Parliament has decided to break until early September,” Hussein Falluji of the mainly Sunni Accordance Front bloc in parliament told Reuters.

“We have already cut the holiday by one month. It is our constitutional right to take it.”

Awwww, poor thing. Although, I really can’t blame them too much. I wouldn’t want to be in Iraq either.

    Awesome, they really are using the American government as a model!
