White House Gives Saddam Hussein Old Job
BAGHDAD -- Finally responding to nonstop attacks against
American soldiers and citizens in Iraq since the U.S. invasion
last year, the White House today announced that it had rehired
Saddam Hussein as the country's dictator.
pretty clear that, at this time, Iraqis can't deal with being
free," Press Secretary Scott McClellan said during the announcement.
"Being free doesn't mean free to kill Americans, you know.
We think Saddam can correct the situation."
"Oh shit!" said the
nation's Sunni, Shiite and Kurd populations in a joint statement,
suddenly remembering life under the brutal dictator. "Can
we start over?"
The move comes after Iraqis in
the northern city of Fallujah attacked and killed four U.S. contractors,
mutilating their corpses and chanting, "Fallujah is the
graveyard of Americans!" and "We sacrifice our blood
and souls for Islam!"
"Fallujah's probably gonna
be the graveyard to a bunch of stone-throwing heathens now,"
quipped Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. "Well, fuck 'em
-- if they can't appreciate the life of freedom, lets give 'em
death courtesy of Saddam."
Asked how America's one-time
friend could become America's enemy and then become America's

"Friend? Look, differences
of opinion aside, we've come to recognize that Saddam had a stabilizing
effect on the region," Rumsfeld said. "Sure, we're
not a fan of his human rights record, invasions or taste in palaces,
but he kept those crazy Islamians in line."
"Besides, I don't recall
anyone in this Administration ever called Hussein 'a bad guy'
in so many words," Rumsfeld added, using finger-quotes.
"It's the media who went and made him out to be the Hitler
of the Middle East, you know."
Hussein, for his part, appears
prepared to take on a new challenge.
"Everyone ask Saddam, 'You
ready Saddam?' every minute since Saddam leave cell!" said
the once, present and future dictator, whose bedraggled appearance
belied his apparent resolve to rule Iraq with an iron fist.
"Saddam say, 'Saddam ready!
Give Saddam rifle!' Ah, thank you, American infidel people --
Uncle Saddam so very happy! Celebrate tonight! Slay 10,000 Iraqis
for disorderly conduct!"
"Oh shit!" said the
nation's Sunni, Shiite and Kurd populations in another joint
