The other dictator in the Middle East

This political joke is from the book "From Beirut to Jerusalem," by Thomas Friedman.


A minister goes to the Syrian dictator Hafez Assad after a national election.

Minister: I have excellent news, Mr. President! You won 98.6% of the vote in the election! Less than 2 percent of the people dissented! What more could you possibly want?

Assad: Their names.
