Blood after Saddams' Hanging
One of my blogger buddies is a political analyst extraordinaire and his astute observations and questioning always leaves me impressed and wanting him to be recognized outside the blogosphere.

So, yes, Mr. Snow and Mr. Bush, justice is about the last two minutes. The first 69 years of Saddam’s life defined who he was. The last 2 minutes of Saddam’s life defined for all the world who Mr. Bush is.
