Boys and Girls, the Circus is in Town
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 07:28 AM by The Whiskey Priest
The first chords from the calliope in Baghdad are inundating the airwaves and the clowns of the American press are rushing to feed the elephant. The ringmasters of the right are preparing to give us a show. Dont be late, come early and come often! Settle back and tune in so you dont miss one thing of this Greatest Show in the World.

What is the cost for this great and wonderful distraction? Very cheap, I assure you, only those things that the Republicans can strip us of while we have our thoughts and eyes on the dancing bear in the center-ring.

All patrons should keep their hands on their wallets; current management is not responsible for anything.

1. If you mean the Saddam trial
they are going to have a problem if The Evil One decides to go into 'tell all' mode.

Watch for delays blackouts and censorship.

3. "The Saddam Trial" is by far the worst TV Reality Show ever!
The translators sound like robots, the judge looks bored out of his mind, and the stock pen doesn't look menacing at all.

Plus, there's no product placement whatsoever.

Really bad show. The "Crimes against humanity" defendant isn't supposed to come off looking so frail. Audience sympathy should be with the prosecution.

This show fails on every level.
