Eating Doritos, Nagging Soldiers, Talking Politics -- How Saddam Spends his Days

Saddam Hussein Rates American Presidents (on a scale of one to five stars):

Ronald Reagan: *****
George H. W. Bush: *
Bill Clinton: ***
George W. Bush: *

Saddam admires Ronald Reagan and thinks Bill Clinton was "OK." But he says both Presidents Bush are "no good."

And the "Butcher of Baghdad" is really good at nagging American soldiers to get married. He told one soldier:

"You gotta find a good woman. Not too smart, not too dumb. Not too old, not too young. One that can cook and clean."
Just some of the thoughts of America's most heavily guarded inmate. The observations appear in GQ magazine. They interviewed some Pennsylvania National Guardsmen who took care of Saddam for a while.

By the way, Saddam loves Doritos and hates Fruit Loops. Guards started feeding him Doritos when the Cheetos ran out. They claim Saddam can plow through a family sized bag of Doritos in about 10 minutes. (Austrailian Financial Review)
