This is just one more indication that Dean is going to spontaneously combust during the general election campaign (if he even gets the Democratic nomination).

This sort of stuff stuff won't wash off (from New York Post Online):

"So there were no TV cameras last Monday night when pro-Dean comics took the stage on West 18th St. in Chelsea at a $250-a-head Dean fund-raiser (reduced from $500) and competed to see how often they could use the F-word in the same sentence.

Comic Judy Gold dissed President Bush as 'this piece of living, breathing s---' and Janeane Garofalo ridiculed the Medicare prescription-drug bill that Bush had just signed as the 'you can go f--- yourself, Grandma' bill.

Just a few days before, rival John Kerry had used the F-word to attack Bush in Rolling Stone magazine in an apparent bid to sound hip, but Dean's event was 'enough to make John Kerry blush,' as rival Dick Gephardt's spokesman Erik Smith tartly put it.

And the Dean event got a lot worse. Comedian David Cross used the N-word for blacks in a disjointed 'joke' apparently based on the premise that it's fine for a pro-Dean comic to use racial epithets as long as the goal is to claim Republicans are racists.

Comic Kate Clinton evoked Michael Jackson (hit with new child-sex-abuse charges) and said: 'Frankly, I'm far more frightened of Condoleezza Rice' - the Bush national security adviser who has nothing in common with Jackson except being black.

Rice seems to drive liberal woman comics especially nuts. Sandra Bernhard insulted her in racial terms with a 'Yes Massa' accent at another Dean fundraiser the same night. Perhaps the pro-Dean comics find it unbearable that the most powerful black woman in U.S. history, close friend to the president and his wife - and a brilliant classical pianist to boot - dares to be a Republican. "

Sandra Bernhardt vs. Condoleezza Rice...yeah Sandra is soooo much more knowledgable on history, foreign policy and national security. That gives her the intellectual and moral authority to equate Dr. Rice with Uncle Tom.

And lest you think that Dr. Dean wasn't in attendance, think again.

As all this hate was getting spewed out, Dean sat backstage listening. Aides say he was fuming, so livid that he almost refused to come out to talk to the crowd. When he did, he began by saying some of the language was "wrong" and "I just don't have much tolerance for ethnic humor." But he didn't refer to all the X-rated anti-Bush and anti-Cheney attacks.

More to the point, he did nothing to stop the hate session.

Everyone there should be ashamed and embarrassed. Anyone present with any class (including the candidate) would have gotten up and walked out of the venue.

Dean owes Bush, Rice and Cheney and apology. It's OK though Dean is just digging his own political grave - he's just digging it with a steam shovel now.

Amnesty would apparently just rather that Saddam had stayed in power considering that they were also "concerned" about Iraqi deaths during the war. They have zero credibility:

"'We are particularly concerned that the Iraqi Penal Code provides for the death penalty for crimes under the jurisdiction of the tribunal,' said Amnesty International.

A bullet through the head is too kind an end for Saddam considering the murder and torture that he's ordered over the last thirty years. The only way Saddam's head should slip out of the noose is if he spills his guts - if he holds back AT ALL the Iraqis ought to put him in front of a firing squad without a blindfold.

Joe Lieberman agrees that Amnesty is full of it:

"This evil man has to face the death penalty.  The international tribunal in The Hague cannot order the death penalty, so my first question about where he's going to be tried will be answered by whether that tribunal can execute him.  If it cannot be done by the Iraqi military tribunal, he should be brought before an American military tribunal and face death.  "


Palestinians Mark 'Black Day' of Saddam Capture (hat tip Command Post):

"RAMALLAH (Reuters) - Disbelief and gloom seized many Palestinians on Sunday at news of Saddam Hussein's capture while Israel, which came under Iraqi Scud missile attack in the 1991 Gulf War, hailed the United States for capturing Saddam."

Well, well...couldn't have predicted that reaction from the people who cheered the fall of the World Trade Center and the deaths of 3000 in New York, could we?

"Maybe they captured someone who looks like him," said Laila Abusharigh, 55, in the Gaza Strip. "Saddam is a real man and all of us are with him."

Yeah, a "real man" to a Palestinian is someone who uses rape, dismemberment and mass murder as tools of state control. A real man lives in lavish palaces while the children of his nation starve. A real man orders two of his son-in-laws assassinated.

The Palestinians are our enemies and its well past time that America started treating them that way.



There are a lot of nervous French, German and Russian government offficials right now because if Saddam talks they are cooked.

I think the following deal should be struck:

If Saddam spills his guts we agree to give him life in prison. But he has to give us everything - locations and disposition of WMD's, information on French, German and other companies who violated sanctions, information on al-Qaeda, information on other terrorist organizations, etc.

If he holds out on us, we give him to the Iraqis and after a very long public trial that exposes, in graphic detail, all of the brutality, the rapes, tortures murders, and gassings he will be exectuted.

His capture could be an intellegence gold mine and it would be worth it to let him live in order to get it. Of course the international community will cry a river if we execute the bastard but I think Bush has proven repeatedly that the whining of the Coalition of the Pissy won't deter him.

Meanwhile interesting Democratic reaction from Senator Joe Biden, who apparently is getting fed up with the presidential candidates of his own party:

The Corner on National Review Online reports: "BIDEN MAKES TROUBLE [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

On with Dan Rather a few minutes ago, Joe Biden said (when asked about how this affects the Dem race)that if we can capture Osama and Mullah Omar and stabilize Iraq and the president gets re-elected, that's just fine with him, and best for the country.

I also saw a clip where Senator Lieberman pointed out that if Howard Dean had been president, Saddam would still have been in power instead of in jail and that Americans would be less safe today.

But really, while the political impact of this is enormous domestically, this day should be reserved for the celebration of Iraqis, Americans and other coalition partners. One of the truly horrific dictators of the twentieth century has been locked up and will no longer threaten the Iraqi people.

Thank you 4th Infantry.

God bless Iraq.
God bless the United States of America.
