Saddam due for a swingin' time this weekend
The US is scheduled to hand Saddam Hussein over to the Iraqi authorities today so that his death sentence can be carried out over the weekend.
Amazingly, the dinosaur media has been reprinting his weepy `farewell letter', which I won't dignify by linking or repeating here. Ahhh, the human side of Saddam..
Weekend Monkey actually was working on an interview with Saddam, but now that Saddam's scheduled to do what our friends across the pond jovially refer to as `The Tyburn Jig' that's highly unlikely.
My only regrets are (a) that it took as long as it did and (b) that we weren't able to interrogate Saddam forcefully and find out exactly what was in all of those trucks that transported what was undoubtedly an interesting load o' stuff to Syria during our 19 month run up to war.
Have a swingin' time, Saddam. That last step is a real killah.
