Josh Marshall writes about the best thing he has ever written in regard to the Saddam Show Hanging:

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.

And thus, like I said yesterday, Saddam becomes Iraqi Jesus.

There is much more to Josh's literary ass kicking, go read it.
