Q: What do get when you cross really bad potatoes with penises ?

I saw a banner ad that Parade magazine was going to have its typically hard-hitting investigative piece this Sunday containing a list of the "World's Worst Dictators" and I assume it will be a fairly non-controversial selection- probably the bigger question is who actually qualifies as a dictator (i.e. I note that Ahmadinetc... doesn't make it (probably because the mullahs have the real power) however Pervez Musharraf comes in at number 8)

Of course this led to the question of who would be at the other end of the list? Therefore I invite Pajama Guy readers to submit their nominations, living or dead, for the "World's Best Dictators" list and use & discuss your own criteria for best. (not-so-bad a guy vs. really good at dictating)

This being the real world, America's always had to deal with a lot of unelected leaders. I could name a fair number that have been reasonable, if far from perfect. To pick just one example, the Husseins who have run Jordan have been okay.
