Not only do you post a double but you don't even link to an actual story, just the front page of CNN... Could you fail this any harder?

FIFY.

We didn't fucking even have the courage to hang him ourselves. We broke it, then we told our flunkies in Iraq to hang him, as if that made anything any better.

Meanwhile, there's still a big fucking hole in NYC, the guy who dug that hole is still at large, and who knows how many fucking people have died over this lie?

If there is a god, or a fucking halfway decent imitation of a god, the next former leader of a country that we hand over to a puppet government to hang will be named George W. Bush.

James Brown is still funkier than Saddam, but only because he's been dead a few days longer.

Watch your step to hell, Saddam.

(regardless of whether the war that brrought him in was just or not, I feel exactly zero sympathy for him)

What the fuck is wrong with some people here? You don't get points for being first out of the gate on a big news story. And even if you wanted to be first you could at least put a little effort into to.

Invade their countries - check.

Kill their leaders - check.

Convert them to Christianity - hmmm, lemme get back to you.

Is two out three Ann Coulter Commandments ok?

So wait, James Brown was hanged? And Saddam died at 93 and will lie in state in Washington DC. And Gerald Ford, the Godfather of Soul, has made his last appearance at the Apollo. Gottit.
