All of this leads me to contemplate this thought today: What will be the reaction to Zarqawi’s death? In Iraq, the killer’s minions are memorializing their fallen hero by, fittingly, exploding people with car bombs. That’s exactly how Abu Musab al-Zarqawi would have wanted it. Indeed, when this man called democracy evil, he should have been looking in the mirror.
But what about the response of John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and senior Democrats? I would hope that they will see this as a positive – even though, yes, acknowledging a positive might mean crediting a plus in the column of George W. Bush.
Unfortunately, I expect them, and the New York Times, to move the goalpost yet again, perhaps reminding us that Osama bin Laden remains at large. That would be sad. The fact is that this is a great day for anyone who cares about democracy and human rights.

Saddam Hussein grew up barefoot in a mud hut in the town of Takrit, north of Baghdad on the Tigris River. He never met his father. His mother, Subha Tulfah, was deeply disturbed, suicidal and homicidal. She repeatedly tried to kill the child in her womb. According to one, probably apocryphal, account, she jumped in front of a bus and screamed: “I am giving birth to the devil!” Some witnesses recalled the pregnant woman banging a door against her extended belly.
