Earlier I quoted an MSNBC.com story:

TWO AMERICAN SOLDIERS were killed in ambushes in Iraq on Wednesday, dashing any U.S. hopes that the killing of Saddam’s sons, Odai and Qusai, would snuff out a guerrilla insurgency against occupying forces.

Just now I read a Scrappleface story:

Now that Saddam Hussein’s sons are dead, a panel of journalists has revised the official Iraq Quagmire Index. According to the new benchmark, all violence against Coalition troops should cease immediately, since Uday and Qusay Hussein are gone.

Is that funny? Sad? I’m not really sure.
