How Important Is this Verdict, Really? 

Apparently not so much, because Matt Drudge didn't bother to stay up so that he could stick red sirens and cannons on his website to hype it. Although you can bet your butts that, when he drags his gay ass out of bed with his current paid for escort in the morning, he'll dapple his page with republiporn proclaiming some kind of victory.

But, honestly -- Saddam guilty verdict? Major Fark Up for the Republicans, and they don't even know it yet, for so many reasons...

1) Hussein sentenced to death for killing about 150 Kurds (even though the Iranians did that); begs the question of what sentence Bush et. al. deserve for killing 2900 Americans and half a million Iraquis.

2) When Iraq blows up in major sectarian violence in 3... 2... 1... and the primary target for that violence turns out to be American soldiers, what's that going to look like?

3) One of Saddam's defense attorneys, a major Republican, already called Shenanigans on this whole thing and walked out. Don't think he won't be the first person making sound-bites this morning? Think again?

4) See above; if a court could convict Saddam to death on this relatively minor charge, then Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzalez, Ashcroft and Rice should be doing the Scaffold Tango before Christmas. Hell, they should have been doing it c. 2004.

5) The Generals of the US Armed Forces were smart enough to make their positions clear before this verdict. If the tanks start to roll into Washington tomorrow, I know which side I'm on.

It's real simple, people. If the US can torture people, then the world can torture us. And, conversely, if this court can hang Saddam for a really minor crime, then there is no excuse whatsoever for not convicting the assholes in power in this country for even worse crimes tomorrow. Period.

Let's just hope enough Americans agree to over-ride the rampant Diebold vote fraud planned for Tuesday. Let's hand these Republican Assholes their heads, and end our long national nightmare.

At the moment, it's up to the voters of this country, and here's hoping they do the right thing. But, if they don't or their choices are usurped, let's hope that the American military follows the lead of their generals.

Major house-cleaning on Tuesday, or coup d'etat on Wednesday. There are no other choices, short of another American Civil War.

Yes -- really. This Tuesday is that serious. Now wake up and do something about it.
