The latest issue of GQ features a fascinating story by Lisa DePaulo about the National Guardsmen who recently guarded Saddam Hussein. In the excerpt, we learn the ex-dictator is a fan of Ronald Reagan ("Reagan and me, good") and dislikes both Bushes ("The Bush father, son, no good"). Clinton was just "okay." But perhaps most interesting is Saddam's dislike of Froot Loops (maybe he's an Apple Jacks guy) and a love for Doritos (I'm guessing Cool Ranch).

I'd bet money that Saddam was a Salsa Verde guy. Aside from being the best flavor of Doritos ever, they were discontinued a while back, so Saddam would have had to stockpile them. The man loved to stockpile things. Cool Ranch? Nacho Cheese? Too easy. No challenge to those, no ego-affirming sense of having beaten the world. But keeping Salsa Verde in the pantry after Frito-Lay switched to Charbroiled Steak or whatever flavor Doritos come in now, that would satisfy the megalomaniac's innermost desires.
