"Is there something ghoulish about this?" Larry King has the nerve
to ask that question when he and CNN thrive on this sort of story. Larry is pissed because it didn't happen during his show.

12. The poster you replied to said they were listening to British media (BBC) and that they
couldn't stand the ghoulish fixation of OUR (presumably American) media with the execution.

3. CNN calling him "The Butcher of Baghdad"...
Gotta love objective media. Can't just say Saddam will be/has been executed. They have to darken it up further.

Hey, CNN: If you want to be honest about it, point out how he was basically an enemy manufactured by the Republican Party for political gain.

6. Still, Saddam was a thug. But then, so's Paul Wolfowitz...
and the whole Neocon fraternity. Time for a little punitive hazing...

18. I don't understand why so many people forget that -
Saddam Hussein was funded and supported by the U.S.

Any Bush supporters remember that?

10. i thought the same thing. only instead of sty i substituted fu*king
and instead of pigs i substituted assholes

and rather than destroy i was thinking more along the line of "blown away"

and then musing that they would call fema and beg for help

Clearly you didn't see my Fuck you George Bush post today.

I feel sick. Hubby has locked himself away in his study. He doesn't even want to watch BBC with me.
