8. It will get just as much play as the last time he said it
Which is to say zero, except for the Randi Rhodes Show, and she'll play it at every other station break. But for the rest of the media? Stone silence will be the official order of the day. Then the relentless stories will come out with subtle linking of Iraq to 9/11, then the startling polls that say that half of the American people think that Saddam had something to do with 9/11, and nobody anywhere will have the slightest idea where the public gets this idea.

This bit of theater has long gotten stale, and with all the dead bodies in Iraq, it doesn't even rate a morbid gallows humor kind of chuckle except from the hopelessly deranged or the sociopaths.
