Saddam Sentenced to Death Just Prior to Midterm Elections

Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to death by hanging. While the trial was imperfect, there is still no doubt he deserves this.

Some “coincidence” that the sentence came virtually on the eve of the midterm elections, just in time to dominate talk on the Sunday morning shows. Initially the White House might have seen the scheduling of the announcement of the verdict as a plus, comparable to the manner in which they released the bin Laden tape on the eve of the 2004 election. Just as their distortion of Kerry’s statement last week backfired by placing more concentration on the fact that George Bush does have us stuck in Iraq, the Saddam verdict may also backfire against Republicans as people consider the incompetent manner in which the war which led to removing Saddam has been conducted.
