Ramsey Clark arrives in Baghdad (Sharon Behn, November 28, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Ramsey Clark, the former U.S. Attorney General and antiwar activist, arrived here yesterday and was expected to try to show up at the reopening of Saddam Hussein's trial in Baghdad today, but a U.S. government official warned that he was not officially registered with the court.

No one illustrates the ideology of the modern Left better than Mr. Clark, who can excuse the actions of any regime so long as it opposed the United States.

You can be sure of one thing.

Wherever Mr. Jellyfish shows up, CNN cameras are sure to be close by.

He makes a very inviting target for those who don't like Saddam's attorneys.

Someone should ask Howard Dean if he approves of Democrat Ramsey Clark, who served under Democrat Lyndon Johnson, working for Saddam Hussein. We could get quite an answer to that question.

And for all the lefty trolls out there, does this prove that the US is again in bed with Saddam?

Jim, I would rather they ask Clinton, Bayh and Kerry. Now that would be interesting.

The chances of any msm reporter asking a Democrat a question about Ramsey Clark are zip, but maybe Bret will deal with it tonight on the livliest two minutes on television. I hope he does, Juan and Mara's dancing around will be fun to watch.

I want to know if Jim McDermott is going to be a character witness.

The old Wizard of Id comic strip had a great one on this, which I called to mind when I heard about Ramsey Clark and Saddam.

In the cartoon, a peasant type is standing on a scaffold, noose around his neck, saying to his briefcase-toting lawyer, "I thought you said my case was being appealed to a higher court."
The next frame shows the lawyer descending the steps, replying, "Keep your shirt on, Ace."
