…If you’re at the right end of the shredder, that is. My Favorite Democrat has said yet another stupid thing. Yes, the standard of living in Iraq was better when Saddam was in power. For the despot and his cronies. I’ll bet Dr. Duck’s medical license that the average Iraqi citizen is a whole lot better off now than under Saddam, and that the situation for that representative citizen is only going to get better with time. Makes me glad to see Kerry and Edwards doing well after Iowa (eventhough the caucus doesn’t mean a thing), makes me think that maybe the entire Democratic party hasn’t lost its head.
