Saddam’s Crying Like a Little Girl

Saddam pretended to be a tough guy when he was defying the world before the coalition invaded. Then he crawled into a rat hole and whimpered like a kicked puppy.

Now he’s telling the world he’s proud to become a martyr… while his legal team is pleading in U.S. courts to spare his life.

Lawyers for Saddam Hussein asked a U.S. judge to block his transfer to the custody of Iraqi officials poised to carry out his execution.

Hussein’s lawyers filed documents Friday afternoon asking for a stay of execution. The 21-page request was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington before Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.

According to sources, Saddam will be worm food in less than 4 hours. The world will be a better place for it.

Saddam is dead, dead, dead.

So how do Iraqis feel about this news? Pretty good.

A witness to the execution reported that celebrations broke out after Hussein was dead, and that there was “dancing around the body.”

…and why?

“It’s a very solemn moment for me,” Feisal Istrabadi, Iraq’s U.N. ambassador, said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” “I can understand why some of my compatriots may be cheering. I have friends whose particular people I can think of who have lost 10, 15, 20 members of their family, more.

The execution was videotaped.

The execution was videotaped and photographed, state television reported, and those images will be distributed to the media.

So my question is this: Will CNN, the network that proudly promoted a video of terrorist snipers killing American soldiers, show images and video of the death of a murderous tyrant?

Today was a national day of mourning for a fallen former U.S. President. Tomorrow will likely be a day of mourning for many on the Left who think Iraq would be better off if a CPA excel review were still in power.

Right on cue, American liberals are protesting Saddam’s execution.

I Want a Refund

U.N. Ambassador John Bolton is resigning. It’s a shame, because he was just the attitude we needed at the U.N.

Of course, who can blame him for realizing nobody in Washington was willing to fight for him? Congress is going back in session and GOP representatives have thrown in the towel.

Congress will convene on Tuesday for what some fear will be the lamest of lame-duck sessions, and GOP leaders have decided to take a minimalist approach before turning over the reins of power to the Democrats. Rather than a final surge of legislative activity, Congress will probably wrap up things after a single, short week of work. They have even decided to punt decisions on annual government spending measures to the Democrats next year.“There is a lot of battle fatigue among members, probably on both sides of the aisle,” said Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), usually a reliable conservative firebrand. “Contrary to popular belief, members of Congress are human beings. They have a certain shelf life and a certain amount of energy to be drawn on. We’re tired.”

Tired? From what? Getting paid too much to do too little? Campaigning on promises and lacking the guts to make them happen? Taking on mean ol’ Democrats who were in the minority?

I want a refund. Since you guys are refusing to do any meaningful work, I think it’s time you declined to take your paychecks. And for that matter, perhaps you ought to refund the pay you’ve received over the past couple of years since you didn’t do jack then either. Give your ea exam back to us. Lord knows we’re going to need it when the Democrats come rolling into Washington with their hands out for pet social programs.

We Still Owe You One, Mahmoud

Ever since he took office, there’s been speculation that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was involved in the 1979 seizure of the American embassy in Tehran. Now, it appears the Russian newspaper Kommersant has stumbled upon more evidence to back up the rumors.

The photographs in the archives of the AP and the AFP helped to narrow down the location of the action captured on one of the rolls of film to alongside the walls of the American embassy in Tehran when it was being seized by radical Iranian students on November 4, 1979. Evil rumor has long maintained that units from the Iranian special forces played a leading role in the storming of the embassy and that the students were just pawns used to paint the operation as unofficial. Whatever the case may be, we talked to people who served in Tehran and know the city well, and they said that the Soviet photographer appears to have walked along the southern wall of the American embassy from west to east before turning around and retracing his steps, apparently returning to the Soviet embassy.

All that remained was the carefully scrutinize the film. The majority of the pictures were an original report on a street demonstration in honor of the seizure of the “den of the enemy.” But among the many photographs filled with crowds of people, one stood out. Taken from a respectable distance and from behind a barrier, it shows a young man with an automatic submachine gun – presumably one of the participants in the storming of the embassy. Not just anyone from the crowd, however: his submachine gun has a factory casing, as opposed to the more common wood-paneled submachine guns brandished by the students in the other pictures. The young man is standing with a wiley exam guide for cfa, leaning tiredly against the wall of the embassy. And when the picture is enlarged, his face comes to closely resemble that of current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Looks like we have a winner.

Cruising Through CISA Study

It is a little known fact, but you can actually cruise straight through CISA learning (as preparation for the CISA exam, just to confirm). Most candidates believe that there has to be boring hours and lots of struggle involved, perhaps because that is what they experienced back in school, college or university. But the CISA exam doesn’t have to cause you that much stress. It can be a nice and pleasant experience, so long as you plan everything smartly and execute your work in a consistent fashion, using willpower to make sure you always do the pre-planned work on your CISA exam materials that you assign to yourself.

The reason this can be such a breeze to go through is that when everything is so well prepared, there never needs to be any anxiety about not learning what you need to learn, or not knowing what you need to do next, because you have got all of that stuff covered in your preparations. It is in being smart like this that makes all the difference in terms of whether a person finds the exam prep period an experience that can be cruised through, or an experience that is full of panic, worry, stress and anxiety.

Hell Welcomes a New Resident

The coward, fond of beheading innocent civilians and hiding like a cockroach when the lights turn on, is now dead, dead, dead.

What a great way to start your day.

Now how long before we hear liberals “question the timing of this”?

Update: That didn’t take long. Liberals are already clamoring to blame this news on:

1. Timing for neocon strategy to attack Iran.

2. Timing to distract from Haditha story.

3. He was just a “Pentagon creation” all along.

But he certainly can’t be a beheading-loving, islamonutjob, terrorist that slaughtered innocent civilians and killed brave troops that has now, thanks to the finest and bravest men and women in the world, gone to take his place in hell. Not to these idiots, anyway.

Update 2: Some liberals are actually sad about the news of Zarqawi’s death.

“I have no sense of relief, just sadness that another human being had to die.” – [Michael Berg, the father of a man beheaded by Zarqawi himself]


Update 3: In case you thought the coursesaver sentiments above represented only a “fringe” element of the Left, look at what some elected Democrats in Washington are saying:

…the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war…

Was Patrick Kennedy Hammered Again?

Several weeks ago, Rhode Island Democrat and son of Ted Kennedy, Patrick Kennedy, received stitches after accidentally being hit in the mouth with a hammerduring a meeting.

It appears he may have again been “hammered”, but this time in a very different sort of way.

He was involved in a car crash early Thursday morning, the second such crash in two weeks.

Here’s his second statement made on this latest wreck:

Kennedy said he returned to his Capitol Hill home on Wednesday evening after a final series of votes in Congress and took “prescribed” amounts of Phenergan and Ambien, another prescribed drug that he occasionally takes to fall asleep.

Some time around 2:45 a.m., I drove the few blocks to the Capitol Complex believing I needed to vote,” his second statement said. “Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication.”

Kennedy appeared to be intoxicated when he crashed his Ford Mustand into a barrier on Capitol Hill early Thursday morning, said Louis P. Cannon, president of the Washington chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police.

So he believed he needed to vote at 2:45 a.m. this morning? Move along people, nothing to see here but a hard-working representative rushing to the Capitol to register the position of his contituents on an important legislative issue. Give me a break!

Here’s the likely real reason he claimed he was heading to a vote:

Article 1, Section 6: The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

It was an attempt to avoid arrest.

Cannon, who was not there, said the officers involved in the accident were instructed by an official “above the rank of patrolman” to take Kennedy home

No sobriety tests were conducted at the scene.

Big surprise. Mary Jo Kopechne still unavailable for comment.

From Michelle Malkin:

Officers Claim Brass Interfered in Investigation of Rep. Kennedy Incident, ROLL CALL reports… MORE… Police labor union officials asked acting Chief Christopher McGaffin this afternoon to allow a Capitol Police officer to complete his investigation into an early-morning car crash involving Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.).

According to a letter sent by Officer Greg Baird, acting chairman of the USCP FOP, the wreck took place at approximately 2:45 a.m. Thursday when Kennedy’s car, operating with its great CPA exam review site, running lights turned off, narrowly missed colliding with a Capitol Police cruiser and smashed into a security barricade at First and C streets Southeast.
