Drudge has been going nuts with the launch Interntional Criminal Court, going into full-bore Tabloid Mode. He’s had the same four headlines running prominently in the lefthand column for more than a day now.

Sorry, wimps — there won’t be entire US armored cav regiments serving time for crimes against war criminals.
Sorry, hawks — there won’t be any air assaults on the Hague to rescue our boys from their Dutch jailors.
