    His rise, fall, rise again is indeed the stuff of comedy if it wasn't so tragic. I hope he gets his comeuppence. I think this super-sleazball is one guy that no one will mind if he got into the wrong place at the wrong time some day. Alas, he does seem like quite the survivor. Wouldn't be surprised to see him emerge as the US ambassador to Iraq or, better yet, to Israel? But the joke about the botched murder of the iraqi is not funny to me. I am dead-set against the death penalty. It is always a state sanctioned murder in my eyes and never justified. Interesting how Bush, who could never execute a black man fast enough in his state, suddenly is criticizing an incompetent execution. Just send them to Texas to learn how it's done.
