Lots of insomniac bloggers are commenting on Geraldo Rivera’s reports from Iraq this morning. As ninme puts it, “random people across the country, watching the same ebullient, mustachioed correspondent:”

> Decision ’08: “I must say his enthusiasm as he broadcasts from Baghdad is quite contagious. Among his comments – ‘Unimaginable under Saddam Hussein’ – ‘People in America should be proud’ – ‘The turnout is amazing’ – ‘This country will heal its wounds’ – ‘The terrorists will lose.'”

> Powerline: “By the way, this has got to be Geraldo Rivera’s finest hour…Geraldo may not quite be a real journalist, but today it seemed to me that he was something more.”

> Captain’s Quarters: “Geraldo’s emotions have overcome him, and he’s not alone.”

> The Great Nick Ball’s Weblog “His comparisons to this event like the ‘falling of the Berlin Wall’ are right on.”
