Jim Addison posted news of Saddam’s verdict and KIm Priestap posted reaction from Saddam, the White House and around the blogosphere. Pat Hynes at Ankle Biting Pundits is posting reminders of what some prominent Democrats have said about Saddam — you know what they said after we went into Iraq, as opposed to what they said back when Clinton was in office, back when they were for Saddam after they were against him. Readers are posting additional examples in the ABP comments. Do any of you remember any others?
It will be interesting to see whether or not this news, and particularly news of Iraqis dancing in the streets over the news, will have an effect on the election here. The polls, which seem to be moving in favor of the GOP in many races, were done before this news broke. We probably won’t really know how this news does or doesn’t affect the election until Tuesday night. What will definitely affect the outcome of the election is our get out the vote effort. Do your part.
Update: Vilmar at Right Wing Howler has been told by an Iraqi that there is a possibility that Saddam could escape the death penalty if he turns 70 before his appeals run out. Vilmar is looking for an expert to tell him whether or not this is true. Anyone know?
