Vice President Biden Terribly Rude To The Memory Of An Old US Chum

A Light Moment At the SOB Ball

“That S.O.B. is rolling over in his grave right now,” said Vice President Joe Biden of the late Saddam Hussein while visiting Iraq on July 4th.

Look, I understand what happens when a US figurehead gets a snootful of self-righteous holiday spirit and exults a scathing damnation of all things evil – sometimes the patriotism causes one to paint one’s self into a rhetorical corner.  So if President Obama can forgive Biden for once complimenting Obama by referring to him as “clean and  articulate” I too can forgive the VP for his bad manners.

But I wonder: can Don Rumsfeld do the same?

I imagine the former two-time Defense Secretary wistfully reviewing the photos of old friends, mayhaps made a tad misty by memories of happier times with bosom buddies of the United States who, like him, just got a bad rap in the end.

Okay, not exactly like him.  Some people get a rap, other people get a rope.

Happy 4th, if you can manage it.
