Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama must be feeling a little bit of relief tonight. Depending on your politics, for now at least, neither one is the most hated woman in America.

News reports this week say that Iraq is reinstating some 20,000 officers who were part of Saddam Hussein’s army. Huh? Didn’t we just dismantle that army after first whipping them, throwing their murderous leader out of office, and then hanging him? I don’t get it.

Yesterday the United States Supreme Court refused to stop the execution of John Allen Muhammad, sentenced to death for the sniper slayings that terrorized Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. in a bloody three week rampage in 2002.

America was thrilled with the news of the recovery of Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped eighteen years ago and resurfaced this week, but we were all appalled to hear the horrific details of her years as a captive at the hands of a sexual psychopath.
