Good News: We'll not know for sure until everything shakes out, but I think we got Saddam last week. Dead or not, he's at least out of the picture leadership-wise. The attempts to show video of him on state-run TV are hilarious. There's plenty of hand-wringing in our media over the danger of speculation, and every video must be put to "careful analysis." Humbug. These videos have been amateurish (charitably described), but mainly only disconnected from reality. In the latest one, Saddam praises several Iraqi divisions for their ability to repel the yankee jackals. Too bad for him some of those divisions surrendered days ago. I may be wrong, but I think the old shit is comatose, at least.
