I would be interested to see what an actual meeting between the two would be like. I bet they have a lot of similar interests. Hunting or something. I doubt it would be the rhetoric they both spout out over the airwaves behind their walls of security.
George: You're a bad man.
Saddam: I am Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq. Death to America!
It would be more like this:
George: Hey Saddam. How you doin'?
Saddam: Not bad. You?
George: OK. You know. Election coming up.
Saddam: Oh yes, I know. Good luck. That Kerry doesn't seem so great. You probably have a good shot. You know, I received 100% of the vote in our last election.
George: Oh yeah, I think I read about that somewhere.
Saddam: You know, but then you came here and bombed me and now I don't have much say in the goings on of the country anymore.
George: Right, right. Sorry 'bout that, but I've got a job to do.
Saddam: No, no, no. I don't blame you. You had a lot of pressure. I didn't make it very easy for you.
George: Yeah, you can be one crazy bastard if you put your mind to it, heh heh heh.
Saddam: Guilty as charged, ha ha.
George: Any plans for the summer?
Saddam: Well, so far just jail and court. And then I'm guessing more prison.
George: Oh, right. Sorry.
Saddam: Don't sweat it. I did it to myself, what with the murders and the torturing.
George: Yeah, that's why I said all that "bad man" stuff.
Saddam: Oh, I know. You were right to accuse me of that. I'm far from perfect. Not worse than Hitler, but still pretty bad.
George: Speaking of worse than Hitler, did you watch Oprah the other day?
Saddam: You are saying Oprah is worse than Hitler?
George: Oh, no no no. She had this special report about men raping babies in South Africa.
Saddam: That's terrible. I didn't see that episode.
George: I didn't either, but I read about it on some guy's blog.
George: Yeah, it's short for "web log." Kinda like a diary on the internet for people to read. Go to http://toole.blogspot.com. I don't agree with everything he says, especially political, but once in a while it's pretty entertaining.
Saddam: I'll check it out. This fellow a friend of yours?
George: Oh no. I just googled "gigantic boobs" the other day and it took me to his site, which is where I read the Oprah thing.
Saddam: OK, well, I've gotta get back to formulating my defense. It's not easy. I look pretty crazy in a lot of these reports. With good reason, I suppose.
George: All right then. Take care.
Saddam: Say hello to your father for me.
George: Will do.
