Saddam is Magic

Could Saddam Hussein's trial and execution have been any more botched?

NPR reports that not only is he seen as a brave martyr in the Arab world for his stoicism in the cellphone execution video, various people report seeing his face in the moon.

A little research later and it turns out this isn't quite a new phenomenon, just one revived due to the execution and ensuing publicity.

Would it have been that hard to ship him off to The Hague for International Court justice? Oh, that's right, Bush/Cheney didn't want any part of that international cooperation stuff except on their own draconian terms.

Given how thoroughly this Administration has botched every single major policy domestic and foreign, are Americans really going to allow themselves to be hoodwinked again by an escalation sales job starting Wednesday night?
