: The beard may have been gray, but Saddam sure looked like Santa to Bush and the GOP. In the adrenalin rush of the news, Bush’s approval rating rose 4 points; his Iraq approval rating rose 10 points. As various commenters have said, the Dow is likely to do the whoopee dance today. But then the adrenalin wears off. It’ll be more interesting to see what this does to the Democratic ranks. Anybody seen any polls yet?
