"the world's worst leaders"

Appearing to be railing against himself, the Shrub was back on the campign trail today.

"We must not allow the world's worst leaders to develop and harbor the world's worst weapons," Bush said at a fund-raising speech [on thursday]. The remark is his standard stump-speech line generally regarded as referring to Saddam. [but at least as appropriate for a description of George W. Bush and the rest of the White House crew]
Meanwhile, in San Antonio, his (sorta vice-)president, Cheney, was once again beating his own little drum for the same absurd obsession.
Vice President Dick Cheney on Thursday hammered home the U.S. case for pre-emptive action against Iraq, brushing off a groundswell of unease among European allies, Muslim states and broader world public opinion.
So, I guess that's settled; the ayes have it.
Cheney used a gathering of Korean War veterans to repeat an earlier indictment of Saddam Hussein, charging the Iraqi leader with acquiring weapons of mass destruction and posing a "mortal threat" to the United States.
