    Caged Saddam To Be Highlight Of Inaugural Ball

    WASHINGTON, DC—Attendees at the Independence Ball, one of nine officially sanctioned galas celebrating President George W. Bush's second inauguration Thursday, will be treated to a viewing of a caged Saddam Hussein, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said Monday. "What better way to honor the president than with a physical symbol of his many first-term triumphs?" McClellan said as Hussein rattled the bars of a cage already suspended above the ballroom where the event will be held. "And I must compliment the planning committee. Outfitting Gitmo detainees with iron collars and forcing them to serve appetizers was an inspired stroke." Ball attendees will also be awarded door prizes, including a basket of nuts, 20 yards of cloth, and a barrel of crude oil.

    sorry... but I forgot where this from from.... maybe FoxNews?

    President George Bush is boasting of an unusual piece of memorabilia brought back from Iraq: the pistol clutched by Saddam Hussein when he was discovered by American soldiers in a spider hole outside his home town of Tikrit after the war.

    Military officials had the handgun mounted after it was seized from the dishevelled and disoriented Iraqi dictator in his underground hideout in al-Dawr in December.

    The soldiers involved in the capture later presented it to the United States President, who keeps it in a study off the Oval Office, according to Time magazine.

    He also keeps there a photograph of US special forces in Afghanistan praying after burying a piece of the World Trade Centre in tribute to the victims of the 11 September attacks of 2001.

    "He really liked showing it off," a White House visitor who had seen the gun was quoted as saying. "He was really proud of it."

    Mr Bush has told select visitors that the gun was not loaded when Saddam was captured, contrary to reports at the time.


    jesus, can they ever get their stories straight?!


    phew, that's better.
