i've been diagnosed with..
Baghdad Bob Syndrome: The onset of depression, tears and an empty feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realize it's been several days since you have had a laugh at the expense of the Iraqi Information Minister.
He grew on me. Sure, it was in the way a fungus would grow on you. I thought that with a little prodding we could convince him to turn his life around. Come to the state, host a reality show or a sitcom. Register Republican. It would have been the ultimate makeover.
I miss his idealism, his cute sneer, his funny way of believing his own disinformation.
Baghdad Bob, come back!
