Carrie Brownstein interviews Saddam Hussein

Cable-access cub reporter "Cindy Overton" scores exclusive interview with "Saddam Hussein" for Boink. (No, not that one.) Hussein apparently goes home from court on weekends, since he sits down with Overton in his home-bunker recording studio in Manhattan, reminisces about the ambitious early days before he ruled Iraq, of screenprinting his face on T-shirts, and speaking to crowds of 50. ("We’re gonna take over the world, we’re going to take over Kuwait, and those are the days. And that’s when being a dictator is really being a dictator.")

Weird, though, Hussein looks a little thinner. A little less belligerent. A little more, hmm... like he's live from New York on Saturday nights. Is that...? Can't be. Must be just a strange spider-holey coincidence.

Thanks to Mili for sending this along.
