Saddam Hussein: "US Troops Seemed Sorta Smart To Me"

To be hanged until dead, dead, dead.

After the Kurds go through their trial, and then through the appeals, etc.

Democrats are already questioning the timing of his hanging in 2016 as being designed "to help Republicans against Chelsea Clinton's presidential run."

CNN, MSNBC Spin The News By Ignoring It: To be honest, I think this changes the public's view on Iraq trivially, if at all. Which makes CNNN's and MSNBC's noncoverage of this all the more blatant.

From Instaheh's verdict round-up:

Hmm. Turned on the TV. Fox was covering Saddam, but CNN was running an election-themed piece on stem cell research, and MSNBC was reporting on the hot prospects for the Harold Ford campaign. You'd think this would deserve more attention than that . . . .

Oh, wait, they just teased a coming story with "Will Saddam Hussein's sentencing spark more violence in Iraq?" I should've figured on that spin, shouldn't I?

Not only will they ignore or spin stories that help Republicans, not only will they ignore or spin stories that might help Republicans, they're now set on ignoring or spinning stories that have a trivial chance of helping Republicans to a statistically-insignificant extent.

Now that's staying on message. John Kerry could learn from them.
