Live from a Qatar jail: delusions of grandeur 

The Arabic press, quoting a US counsel working with the Coalition Provisional Authority, reports that Saddam still thinks he's the president of Iraq. Saddam, apparently is "not aware of any of the developments taking place outside prison."

I don't know what's worse: the fact that Saddam still thinks he's the president, or the fact that much of the left seems to think that it would have been better if he still was.

The report goes to note that "Saddam was writing daily, always demanding pens and paper."

If he's writing his own "Mein Kampf" now, then Saddam has got the whole Hitler thing the other way around; you write your book before you become a bloodthirsty dictator. If Saddam's really doing it in reverse we can expect him next to start painting watercolours. Unless the firing squad gets to him first.
