Bush's bad timing: Rep. Jim McDermott, Washington State's designated idiot in the Congress said Saddam's capture on Saturday was timed to help President Bush politically.
In an interview Monday with a Seattle radio station, McDermott said the U.S. military could have found the former Iraqi dictator "a long time ago if they wanted."
Asked if he thought the weekend capture was timed to help Bush, McDermott chuckled and said, "Yeah. Oh, yeah."
McDermott went on to say, "There's too much by happenstance for it to be just a coincidental thing."
When interviewer Dave Ross asked again if he meant to imply the Bush administration timed the capture for political reasons, McDermott said: "I don't know that it was definitely planned on this weekend, but I know they've been in contact with people all along who knew basically where he was. It was just a matter of time till they'd find him.
"It's funny," McDermott added, "when they're having all this trouble, suddenly they have to roll out something."
I'm sorry, but better timing would have been, oh, a few months ago ... or perhaps right after a particularly deadly day in Iraq ... or even just a few days before next year's election.
Saturday, December 13, is hardly the best time for this.
McDermott is an idiot.
Unfortunately, this is more and more indicative of the mental state of the loony left. Hatred of George W. Bush appears to addle the brains.
