No Dignity

Saddam had requested that he face death by a firing squad, which would have been more fitting for a deposed head of state, in his view, than a hanging. However, that would have been too much of a reward for the dictator who murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people, and committed horrendous atrocities against the people of Kuwait. He did not deserve to die with dignity.
On a lighter note, Freaking News a website for creative photoshop has this funny "endorsement" picture, submitted to the site by "Keb:"

I don't disagree with you, but I'm not sure that calling picking your own death a "reward" is the right way to put it. Maybe if your ultimate destination is death, you should be able to pick your own way out.

I'm not sure I get the joke. Hasn't Carter been out or office since 1981?

Kurt, being out of office doesn't mean he can't still cozy up to murdering dictators.
