Hello Sue! Saddam’s a tyrant

Along comes Sue Gray with her wish list for the people of Iraq. I found it astonishing that one of her “hopes” was for the Iraqi people to return to “Saddam’s secular rule,” whereas it now appears that Iraq may be plunged into a “heretofore unknown repressive state.”

Hello Sue! Saddam’s Baathist party rule was secular? Saddam’s Baathist party rule was not repressive? Now there are a couple of bulletins.

Another of Sue’s “I hopes” is “that G.W.Bush didn’t desecrate the office of the presidency by lying, etc., etc.” Well, Sue, let me assure you that the office of the presidency was desecrated and lowered to a standard unmatched in our country’s history by the “white trash couple” who resided in the White House from 1992 to 2000.

In closing, I have an “I hope” of my own. Sue, I hope you will share the formula for whatever it is you’re smoking these days ” it must be pretty darn good stuff and I, too, would like to wander about in a delusional state of mind, dreaming up wish lists for the rest of the world.
