Hang the Bastard

The news that Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to “hang by the neck until dead” brought a rousing chorus of “Hang the Bastard!” from Stone and Parker’s Cannibal! The Musical to my lips.

Once I got over that however, I pondered the political implications of such a sentencing only two days before elections.

Veeeery interesting, say I.

Edit: Look who else is pondering: Dan Gillmor

5/4/2009 Update: It’s been almost 3 years, and what remains in my mind from this event is the video of the hanging that showed up on YouTube. This was one of the first major incidences of user-generated content that I can remember.
