Transterrestrial Musings quotes a BBC interview with an Arabic language expert:
It starts with a tape of Saddam in his nightgown, in which he calls the President, among other things, a donkey.
Lead question to Mr Arabic expert: "So, is this bad?"
. . . .
"Oh, yes, yes, it is the greatest of insults. There is no lower animal that one can compare an opponent with. It is worse even than a pig. Clearly Saddam is very angry at Mr. Bush."
It appears that Saddam lacks imagination when it comes to ranking the lower animals -- either that or he's not as angry at Bush as some Americans are. After toying with chimp parallels for a few days, Max Sawicky has sunk to comparing Bush to a dung beetle. I expect him to start writing for WarBloggerWatch any day now.Posted by Dr. Weevil at March 23, 2003 12:02 AM
