This is pretty stunning, really. The self-styled leader of the Iraqi exile movement can't even get them to vote for him.

Chalabi's supporters here had hoped he would do well among exile voters who were allowed to cast ballots overseas. But results announced Monday showed he received just 0.89 percent of the "special vote,'' from Iraqi citizens in foreign countries, hospitals, the army and prisons.

BTW, are we still paying his Iraqi National Congress group tons of money?
