Drudge Banner: Saddam drops within 48 hours. UPDATE: Dead by Eid.

Just a banner so far on Drudge, but Saddam is saying goodbye to his family.

I’ve heard rumors, too.

I had kind of hoped for a Times-Square-at-Midnight countdown on New Year’s Eve, but hey, let’s get on with it.

UPDATE: MSNBC has the story. Eid starts Sunday.
