I honestly have no idea what to say about this shameless bit of manipulative politics.
I say all of that because the Bush administration, in one of the most shamelessly manipulative acts one can fathom, has ensured that the show trial of Saddam Hussein is scheduled to end with a guilty verdict and likely death sentence on November 5 — two days before the election. They are now openly acknowledging that they think this event should and will influence the outcome of our election.
Can we seriously just get rid of these jackasses? There is literally nothing they won’t say, do, or exploit if they think it will provide an electoral benefit. Manipulating a foreign trial date to ensure maximum possible effect in influencing domestic elections? They are truly amoral.
