Great line of the day 

Billmon crunches the numbers to compare Iraqi deaths under Saddam with Iraqi deaths under Bush, concluding that the death rate under Bush is more than double what it was under Saddam. Billmon then draws this conclusion:
. . . you don't need to be an inhuman monster to cause an inhuman amount of death, destruction and suffering. You don't even need evil -- ignorance and arrogance and incompetence can manage the job quite nicely. But, as I've said before, it does requires a rare combination of those qualities to take a situation like Saddam's Iraq and make it worse . . .
Emphasis mine.
