But at least they’re better than this guy:
Libya‘s Muammar el-Qaddafi appeared to be trying out for My Fair Lady yesterday when he addressed reporters, his first statement since protests broke out in his country. He appeared for about 30 seconds on Libyan Television, saying, “I want to have some rest…Because I was talking to the young man at Green Square, and I want to stay the night with them but then it started raining. I want to show them that I am in Tripoli, not in Venezuela. Don’t believe those dogs in the media.”
Denial is apparently not just a river in Egypt.
Update: Qaddafi spoke again on state television Tuesday. It was just as incoherent. (He will never leave Libya. He will die a martyr. The protesters are on drugs. The protests are happening because of “greasy rats and cats.” Um. Yeah.)
