Did You Know...

You’ve seen the photos of poor old Saddam in his skivvies, but there are some other interesting details in the New York Post’s account of Saddam’s jail life that aren’t getting as much attention.

The terribly abused tyrant gets hair dye, example, “to keep his mane youthful-looking.”

He gets three squares a day, a fluffy pillow, and full-air conditioning. Plus, “He can exercise in a 4,300-square-foot back yard while razor wire keeps out would-be attackers. He tends a small garden in a nearby courtyard.”

Reports the Post’s Gersh Kuntzman:

“It may look pretty basic from these [photos], but Saddam is pretty comfortable in there,” a soldier who has seen the photos told the newspaper. “Hell, the man’s got much more living space than most the GIs out here. You should see the tent I have to share with 30 other guys.”

And now Saddam is going to sue?!?!

Like Power Line sez: Cry me a river.
