Say what?

Reuters has finally lost its sanity.

What relevance does this statement ("the gun [ ] is kept in a small study off the Oval Office where Bush displays memorabilia. It is the same room where former President Bill Clinton had some of his encounters with former intern Monica Lewinsky") have to an article about how Pres. Bush keeps the gun Saddam had on him when US troops captured him in his rat nest?

Should Clinton have kept a bronze impression of Lewinsky's lips in his memorabilia cabinet?

The gun was mounted and presented as a gift by the soldiers to their Commander-in-Chief and the President displays it with other memorabilia. The spin put on this by Time and Reuters seems to be that this is either indicative of Pres. Bush's trophy hunting or is somehow abnormal. Honestly, if FDR or Churchill had put Hitler's head on a pike, I'd have had no problem with that. I'm thinking that the Knesset could have done that with Eichmann after the Mossad nabbed him in Buenos Aires in the early 60s. Talk about the press being out of touch . . .
