Saddam hanged

There's no need to link to anything to provide the story. There is, however, a need to discuss it.
From Josh Marshall:
This whole endeavor, from the very start, has been about taking tawdry, cheap acts and dressing them up in a papier-mache grandeur -- phony victory celebrations, ersatz democratization, reconstruction headed up by toadies, con artists and grifters. And this is no different. Hanging Saddam is easy. It's a job, for once, that these folks can actually see through to completion. So this execution, ironically and pathetically, becomes a stand-in for the failures, incompetence and general betrayal of country on every other front that President Bush has brought us.
I have always maintained that Saddam should be dealt the most severe of hands from the international community. But it had to come from a moral, conscienable source, prepared to deal with his high crimes from a dignified and just quarter.

Instead, we got George W Bush. What a fucking crime.
