The sidearm has made its way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Sources say that the military had the pistol mounted after the soldiers seized it from Saddam and that it was then presented to the President privately by some of the troops who played a key role in ferreting out the old tyrant. Though it was widely reported at the time that the pistol was loaded when they grabbed Saddam, Bush has told visitors that the gun was empty—and that it is still empty and safe to touch. 'He really liked showing it off,' says a recent visitor to the White House who has seen the gun. 'He was really proud of it.'"
Ok, and I know that R will hate this, but I think that this has far more to do with Bush and Daddy than it does anything else. Think about it. Every time 41 comes to visit, 43 can show him his little memento of his successful attempt to unseat Saddam. "See Daddy, I am better than you."
On another note, it is just sick.
