Liliks on Saddam

James Lileks has come back from his self-imposed exile for a one-off on the capture of Saddam. I don't agree with Lileks all of the time.  Even when I don't agree with him, his writing is shining, excellent, and convincing.
Many have noted that the sight of Saddam looking like Nick Nolte’s mugshot will have a harsh effect on our old seething friend, the Arab Street. They will see him looking like a piss-soaked bum with matted hair and bags under his eyes that look like Kathy Bates’ bosom, and they’ll see the Proud Example brought low, the man who had stood up to America humbled and unmanned.
Ouch! That's an insult to Kathy Bate's bosom. Like all the other web logs say, go read the whole thing.
