While We're Doing New Years Lists...
The "Crap In Your Hand and Fling It" Award goes to Homeland Security's Frances Fragos Townsend who, when asked if the fact that Osama bin Laden has never been captured could be considered a failure, replied: "Well, I'm not sure. It's a success that hasn't occurred yet. I don't know that I view this as a failure."
The "Speaking Truth To Power" Award goes to Spc. Thomas Sheck, 25, now on his second tour in Iraq. Following the execution of Saddam Hussein, he assessed: "First, it was weapons of mass destruction. Then, when there were none, it was that we had to find Saddam. We did that, but then it was that we had to put him on trial. So now, what will be the next story they tell us to keep us over here."
The "Best Description of Saddam's Demise in A Single Headline" Award goes to The Huffington Post's Tony Hendra, who penned: "Former American Puppet Executed by Current American Puppets."
