Aras bid one for Devil's Dictionary

I LIKE to think if Ambrose Bierce were still alive, he might include the following in The Devil's Dictionary:

Hubris: when a leader of a criminal, terrorist gang, which engages in indiscriminate bombing of civilians, regardless of age, sex, religious or political affiliation, presumes to run for the elected office of the head of state of a democratic republic, whose legitimacy he denied for decades.
