Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


An upcoming issue of GQ reports on Saddam Hussein's life in military custody.

"Saddam Hussein loves Doritos, hates Froot Loops, admires President Reagan, thinks Clinton was 'OK' and considers both Presidents Bush 'no good.' He talks a lot, worries about germs and insists he is still president of Iraq."

I suppose it makes sense that Hussein would admire the president who provided him with weapons and millions of dollars in aid back in the 1980s. Elsewhere in the article, Hussein goes on to offer advice on relationships to a soldier charged with guarding him.

Saddam was friendly toward his young guards and sometimes offered fatherly advice. When O'Shea told him he was not married, Saddam "started telling me what to do," recalled the soldier. "He was like, 'You gotta find a good woman. Not too smart, not too dumb. Not too old, not too young. One that can cook and clean."'
