John Kerry and Sadaam Hussein: When Words Mean Nothing

Captain Ed & John Hinderaker at Powerline have captured two items today that made me smile sadly.

John's post compares Senator Kerry's recently failed bill to withdraw Amnerican troops from Iraq by the summer of 2007 with his presidential campaign when he declared that such a strategy could cynicaly and unwisely be promoted by the GOP for political reasons.

Captain Ed's item concerns Sadaam's latest well-publicized "hunger strike" in protest of the recent murder of one of his defense attorneys; a hunger strike that consisted of the former President of Iraq skipping lunch . . . once.
