Saddam Still Hanging Around

OK, I'm getting impatient now waiting for this guy to swing. Now he's looking for a stay of execution from a United States judge, who I hope isn't some moonbat ACLU type. Still, the word is he'll hang within hours.

Hussein's lawyers filed documents Friday afternoon asking for a stay of execution. The 21-page request was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington before Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.

Attorneys argued that because Hussein also faces a civil lawsuit in Washington, he has rights as a civil defendant that would be violated if he is executed. He has not received notice of those rights and the consequences that the lawsuit would have on his estate, his attorneys said.

"To protect those rights, defendant Saddam Hussein requests an order of this court providing a stay of his execution until further notice of this court," attorney Nicholas Gilman wrote.

The judge was appointed by The Great Stainmaker, always a bad sign.

UPDATE: Via LGF. Now it's official. Tonight's the big night. Happy trails, scumbag.
