Moonbat Prediction

Ramsey Clarke to defend Saddam

Ramsey Clark, for those who don't know, is Lord Emperor of the Moonbat left. It is only a matter of time before his minions begin ramping up the "Saddam wasn't so bad; he made the trains run on time unlike that fascist chimp Bush" rhetoric. I'll start the bidding at Thursday, 11:00 AM.

Here is a quote to get the left up and running:

Clark also said the US itself must be tried for the November assault on Falluja, destruction of houses, torture in prisons and its role in the deaths of thousands of Iraqis in the war.

The idea of a defense lawyer is to, you know, defend the client. I'm surprised it took you this long to express some sort of outrage that someone, anyone, would dare mount a defense. It could be Ramsey Clark or anyone else, you would still take your cheap shots.

I'll think I'll take this system over the roll over, surrender and die method. Readers of NotSoMuch can look forward to Max's spirited denunciations of anyone who dares critize the United States during the trial.

I have no beef with Saddam getting a fair trial with a good defense. It is, after all, one of the many, many, things that distinguish good governments from those like his regime.

The post is not objecting to his getting a defense, but pointing out that he is being defended by a crazed leftist.

Saddam has had a defense team for about 10 months now. I have made no comments disparaging them (despite the fact that lead counsel is a frenchman, so the cheap shot is available).

Finally, no, I will not denounce anyone who dares criticize the US. I will denounce, however, a legal strategy that is based on the theory of: Oh, yeah, well your country is a big poo poo head.

The fact is, this trial is about Saddam, not mistakes of the US military. Those mistakes don't even enter into the debate of Saddam's guilt or innocence. To the extent that Ramsey Clark is involved in Saddam's defense, we are likely to see more denunciations of the US than we are defenses of Saddam's crimes.
