Do Americans Really Care About Saddam's Trial?......
Don't the cable networks get it? Why are they taking so much time on Saddam's trial? Help me here folks. I don't really care what happens to Saddam. In my mind he's been neutralized way back since the 'no-fly zones'.

What I care about is our soldiers getting killed senselessly.

What I care about is that our soldiers come home.

What I care about is that we stop those that lied us into war.

What I care about is to learn more about the impending indictments.

What I care about is Hurricane Wilma and the people in its path.

What I care about is the price of gas.

What I care about is rebuilding New Orleans.

What I care about is taking back our government from the likes of DeLay, Frist, Rove, Libby, Cheney, Bush et al.

Why do we have to put up with Saddam. Come-on CNN, MSNBC, Faux cover the stories that really matter.

1. The constitutional referendum news seems to have been lost on Americans...
My bet will be that most people won't give a turd. Most people are watching this monster hurricane and waiting for indictments to come down.

No dog and pony show will distract Americans from the revelation of the Bush administration corruption that's headed down the pike.

2. It's more of a curiosity

Gee what will Saddam do next? He's been quite entertaining in his other appearances. I hope he tells BushCo to put it where the sun don't shine.

3. Come on
you know this isn't anything but a pony and doggie show for the blinded by the Bush to get their minds off the current WH troubles and is a distraction tactic. After all, what has Sadam done that GW and the military aren't doing themselves? Torture and killing innocent people? Sadam does it = trial. Bush does it = setting the people of Iraq free. BTW, if your watching Washington journal you will hear the Bush whackers at their best, ignoring facts and saying the lies that Fox told them.

4. Watching this trial is like watching paint dry.
Why do I think Shrub told them when to start it? Indictments must be coming today.

5. ...or grass grow. This is one story I'm not going to be
watching. If the MSM are too lazy to put actual news on, they will be losing a lot of listeners.
