Saddam Calls Democrats to Testify on His Behalf

Why shouldn't he? They have already made his case for him.

Rush Limbaugh: Saddam Hussein's Defense Speech: "Bush Lied and I Want My Country Back."---

RUSH: I've been thinking about something. Ever since Friday night, Saturday, I've been thinking about this, and I don't know where the germination of the idea came from, but wherever it came from, it's a good one. If I were Saddam Hussein, I would demand that my trial be postponed on this basis:

    • The honorable Senate Democrats in the United States are doing an honorable investigation to find out exactly what happened to cause me to lose my country, and until these honorable Senate Democrats in the United States get every one of their questions answered about the manipulation and the distortion of the intelligence -- and of course all of the lies about my having weapons of mass destruction; all this before my country was invaded -- I can't get a fair trial, until all these questions are answered by the Senate Democrats. And after these Senate Democrats get the answers that we all know are out there, I, Saddam Hussein, would argue that I never had any weapons of mass destruction, and whatever bad intelligence was generated by a cowboy, fratboy president and his indicted staff, who have poisoned world opinion about me and my government, and as such, I can't get a fair trial anywhere -- and I want my country back. I'm going to make this trial about George W. Bush, and I'm going to be calling as witnesses people like Dick Durbin and Ted Kennedy. I'm going to call Chuck Schumer.
