Howard Dean was on ‘Meet the Press’ (transcript here) over the weekend and referred to Saddam Hussein as “a pain in the neck”.
A “pain in the neck” is what parents call their kids when they won’t stop whining for ice cream, what you call your boss when he gives you work at 5pm on a Friday, and how you refer to the umpire that gave your team a bad call. It’s not really, tough enough for a dictatorial mass murderer.
Dean’s comments are just more proof that Democrats really, truly, wholly don’t get it. Saddam Hussein invaded two sovereign countries, brutally murdered the Kurds, his thug sons raped women and young girls, cut off limbs, slaughtered whole families, built prisons for children, and rained down pain and destruction on the people of Iraq like Howard Dean can not possibly imagine. His downplaying of the evil of Saddam Hussein shows he’s unfit for any sort of leadership role. I can’t wait for Dean’s statement that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is such a jerky face and that Kim Jong Il is so, like, annoying.
