James Taranto asks, re the potential Sunni boycott of the Iraq elections,   "Would an Afrikaner boycott make a South African election "illegitimate"?." The answer is no, of course, because no one in North America cares much about the rights –or concerns - of the beleaguered Afrikaners.

But his response, that the majority is the majority, should be noted by GOP strategists, who repeatedly insist that Republican victories don`t really count, unless they increase their black and Hispanic votes.

Or does an  American majority somehow not count?
