Tony Snow wonders about the "concern about the last two minutes of Saddam Hussein's life..."

Poor Tony Snow. It's his job to spin away any worry on the domestic scene, and so he gives a curt dismissal of all that talk about Saddam's execution. Of course, those of us talking about the chanting of Moqtada al-Sadr's name leading up the execution of Saddam don't actually mourn the fallen Ba'athist.

I don't know about you, but turning the execution into a Shiite Arab victory may be seen as divisive. Nevermind that, even when uttered by a dictator, interruption of a prayer may seem impious to a former seat of the caliphate.

In other news, the Iraqi government has learned well--wrap your brain around this quote:

"Whoever leaked this video meant to harm national reconciliation and drive a wedge between Shi'ites and Sunnis."
