"Baby Doc" Hypocrisy

Like many tyrants, Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier insisted that everything he did -- from torturing political opponents to looting the country -- was for the national good. The extent of Baby Doc's hypocrisy, however, was evident in the posters which he once erected around Haiti: "I should like to stand before the tribunal of history as the person who irreversibly founded democracy in Haiti," they read. Each was signed: "Jean-Claude Duvalier, president-for-life."
