Could be worse

Thanks (I guess) to Orac for helping me discover that, as horrible dictators go, I'm:

Francois Duvalier

You scored -1 Ego and -1 Ideology!

Trained as a doctor, Francois Duvalier (1907?-1971), a.k.a. "Papa Doc," became president of Haiti in 1957. Papa Doc claimed to be a powerful houngan who modeled himself on the mythical Baron Samedi, and many Haitians believed him: after all, anyone who spoke out against him died mysteriously. (More skeptical observers put the blame on the fearsome "Tonton Macoute" militia, who were paid only what they stole from victims.) What little money changed hands in his country tended to go into his. After his death in 1971, he was succeeded by his 19-year-old son Jean-Claude ("Baby Doc"), who rode Daddy's coattails until his overthrow in 1986. ("Baby Doc" proceeded to lose all his ill-gotten gains through gambling and divorce.)

No one can do that voodoo that you and Duvalier do. You may not be the richest or the most charismatic person on the block, but when you speak, people listen. Is it your pragmatic nature that commands respect, or is it the fear of finding severed goat heads on their lawns? You know the dark side of human nature well, and you use it to your advantage. Just remember to keep an eye on your kids. You don't want some wastrel to dilute your legacy of terror.
