Of course the tyrannophiles, otherwise known as the Left, are having a fit over the permanent disposal of Saddam Hussein.
I once wrote this about the relationship between the Left and their beloved tyrants:
Socialists are inherently parasitic and thus cannot take "no" for an answer to their demands for obedience and the material goods they need to exist. If they did so they would wither away and die.
A dictator, on the other hand, does not have to take "no" for answer. Thus socialists are by necessity inclined to favor dictatorships over citizen-ruled republics.
When they see a dictator in the dock, they see their own hopes and desires go with him.
And when they see a dictator doing a dance at the end of a rope they see themselves perishing with him.
Do I really need to say more?
No, I really don't think so.
Update at 0740 CST:
Apparently I do have something more to say.
The frothing of the Left continues. Their hatred of President Bush the Tyrannicide will intensify because they will see him as an active hazard to their own lives. So we should expect to see them become more explicit in their desire to see President Bush die.
We should watch for the first "Kill Bush" bumper stickers.
Update at 0940 CST:
Eon over at LGF had this to say on the subject:
Also, to a great extent, the attitude of these individuals toward the likes of Saddam is that of envy. They see someone they would like to emulate, and whom they believe they are entitled to emulate, as follows;
1. I am a progressive. I am therefore on a higher moral plane than anyone else.
2. (1) proves that I am innately superior to all others. I am therefore the one best suited to rule, and gain the rewards of doing so.
3. (1) and (2) together should be obvious to all others, so they should therefore recognize my inherent specialness and general wonderfulness and obey me as I manage their lives for them- to my benefit, as I am far more important than they are.
4. Anyone who does not acknowledge the truth of (1), (2), and (3) is both stupid and evil, and must be destroyed.
You or I can see that this entire argument is built on a false premise- namely, that those who style themselves as "progressive" are somehow different or inherently better than the rest of the human race. But the ones who claim this label are convinced that it is not merely true, but an immutable law of nature.
Or in other words, they believe in a cult of self-worship.
This probably explains most of the posters on DailyKos, HuffPo, and DU. As well as anyone who ever thought that all answers to any problem could be found in the works of Marx, Engels, or Marcuse. Or Nietsche, for that matter.
Just an observation.
