What is good for the goose

I just ran across this MSN news story entitled "Alleged Saddam tape on sons’ deaths." It states:*

TIKRIT, Iraq, July 30 — Skeptical Iraqis began to show signs on Wednesday that they believed Saddam Hussein’s sons Odai and Qusai were dead after a new audiotape attributed to the fallen dictator said his sons had become martyrs in the fight against American occupation.
Now, conversely, should that not lead us to the conclusion that the Iraqi citizens have therefore confirmed the voice on the tape to be that of Saddam?

*Oh, I am absolutely sure that someone else has already found and reported on this story, but I ran across the link to the story when I was checking my hotmail account. I owe no attribution on this one.

[UPDATE: I am fuckin' pissed simply aghast! I thought this was such insightful political analysis that I emailed it to InstaPundit. Not the link, but the whole post, the link to the story, and my permalink. He would not even have had to come to visit my blog to blurb it. But does he? No, three hours, and not a single mention! And what is this with this channelling crap and emulation of his utterly uninteresting style? I mean I understood the first time I emailed him an offer to visit my blog way back when I was pond scum and was ignored, but I have been in the top 300 of the Blogosphere for several weeks and holding steady and my readership climbs day by day. Glenn get off your damn high horse and realize that some of us Johnny-Come-Latelies might be worth a look or a mention once in awhile, also.]

If you want to get more attention get a column in
slate or the like. It's not what you know, it's
who you hang out with.

I sure hope you spelled his name correctly in that email, at least. ;)

I did: InstaPundit. Fixed my error, thanks for pointing it out.

Oh, sure. I do two rather long-ish posts detailing some key elements of Hitler's and Mussolini's ideology, demonstrating that they aren't conservative (despite the "study" which stated they were) and I get slammed for a summary post ;)

Oh, the irony.

Of course, by the same token, a mention is a mention :)
