The Philosopher

Because Žižek
zizek.jpg…is coming town, a quote from one of his many books:

What Saddam is not is a fundamentalist obsessed with the “Great Satan,” ready to blow the world apart just to strike at him. The ultimate proof of this secular nature of the Ba’ath regime is the ironic fact that, in the Iraqi elections of October 2002, in which Saddam Hussein got a 100% endorsement and thus overdid the best Stalinist results of 99,95%, the campaign song played again and again on all the state media was none other than Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”

At least Saddam and Osama bin Laden had something in common -- a love for Whitney Houston.
