Racing to Irrelevance

Examine this screen capture from Yahoo! for irony:



So, according to the AFP, a majority of Americans now think the Iraq war was wrong. At the same time, a majority of Iraqis voted for a new Constitution.

What's wrong with this picture?

UPDATE 10/26: Okay, that was pretty obscure. The irrelevance race is between the Media and American public opinion's ability to make a difference in Iraq. Good first steps have been taken toward something like democracy there. They've got a long way to go before they're up to Brooklyn standards, let alone someplace civilized. But the more steps they take, the less difference it makes if the establishment Media would rather see Iraq fail than a U.S. Administration (particularly if it's Republican) succeed.
