Headline: Bush wishes Hussein execution was 'more dignified'

Somewhere in an alternate universe: It's an election year, the Democratic candidate has just said exactly the same thing, and the Republican Party is ripping him a new asshole the size of Mars.

As a longtime Survivor viewer, I've been bothered by its slow decline.
