The New Ace of Spades?

My wife bought me a deck of Baath Party playing cards. You know, the ones with Saddam Hussein al-Tikriti as the Ace of Spades. The deck sits on our coffee table in the living room, and I like to flip through it every now and then. It's a satisfying experience, rather like seeing Slobodan Milosovic in chains in the Hague, or seeing Manuel Noriega's Florida prison mug shot.

So perhaps you'll understand why I think this is pathetic.
