hell, he'd like to have Saddam's head on a pike pole in the Oval Office, but I'll bet he'll have to settle for a chunk of the rope.

sorry. if I'm being too cynical please tell me...

1. I don't think you are being cynical enough
He may want the whole rope.

2. Ewwwwww. I forgot that Baby Caligula likes souvenirs of death
Bush likes to deal out death, doesn't he? It gives him a rush. (shudder)

5. Historically, no
The Pilgrims put the head of King Phillip on a pike after they killed him ca 1676 (King Phillip was the chief of the Massasoits). Right now in Benton, Illinois, the family of the hangman and a local museum are disputing who gets posession of the rope that hung Charlie Berger, the last person hung in the state of Illinois.

8. He will have to fight George Allen for the rope,
Maccacca may want it for his "Western Memorbilia" collection.

11. one of Bush's minions should just pick up a length of it at the Home Depot
There will be plenty so they won't have to share ... and I doubt either of those guys will figure out that it isn't the real stuff.

After one famous hanging here in Canada in the 1800s, someone bought a whole lot of rope and sold literally hundreds of one-foot pieces of it as souvenirs. Personally I think that those who were cheated did get what they paid for!

10. here`s what the rude pundit thinks
"Cut that fucker's head off his corpse and graft it onto George W. Bush's right shoulder, so that it rots away next to him just like Iraq, so the President can watch the decay every time he looks in the mirror and smell it constantly."
does`t the rude one have a way with words!

12. Locking.
"Do not post "flame bait" discussion topics. While there is no clear line regarding what constitutes flame bait, the moderators have the authority to shut down threads which they consider too rhetorically hot, too divisive, too extreme, or too inflammatory. Please use good judgment when starting threads; inflammatory rhetoric does not normally lead to productive discussion."
