Brief news and politics note.

I don't usually talk about politics here, because usually anything I think has been said better elsewhere. I wanted to note this down, though, more as a reminder to myself of my state of mind than anything.

Had a bad night last night, basically no sleep, so this may account for part of it—but when Chad told me, shortly after I woke up, that Hussein had reportedly been captured, my first reaction was, "Gee, I wonder how they're going to screw this up."

If it's true, I am glad. But it's a measure of my opinion of Our Nation's Leaders that "I'm glad" was not my first thought. The sad part is, I don't even feel like a nutbar conspiracy theorist for having this reaction. For wondering what kind of proof we'll see and noting the timing (other headline on Washington Post's website: "Iraq Car Bomb Kills 17"), yeah, but overall I just feel tiredly resigned to that they're going to botch this as badly as most other things.

I'm going to go play with the dog, now.
