The Spirit Of “Baghdad Bob” Lives!
Apparently most people have forgotten the sacred vow uttered by The Greatest PR Person In All History: Mohammed Saïd al-Sahaf, colloquially referred to by his fans and admirers (like me!) as “Baghdad Bob.”

I actually bought the DVD put out about him!
I’m still waiting for this one:
God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.
