"So, Mr. Minister, welcome so much here."

That's the way Hillary Clinton talks. And she dresses like this:



And there you can also see Libyan National Security Adviser Dr. Mutassim Qadhafi. He has a very shiny brown suit.

They both like to wear their hair tucked behind their ears.

Did he trim his lapels with satin or something? Looks like something from the 70s.

JSF said...

In 100 days, what has "smart diplomacy," achieved?

It has not stopped the Taliban getting closer to Kariachi.

The oceans have not stopped rising, and President Obama has not stopped the Iranians from talking about destroying Israel.

Again I ask, what has "Smart Diplomacy," achieved?

Beta Conservative said...

They look like they're going to a sad prom.

TexMex said...

Add some bling there on Qadhafi and we've got a disco party!

Hey i've been tough on Hillary in the past, but I think she's dressing pretty snazzy these days. At least she's not wearing the flowered dresses and Blossom hats...um you might have to be a certain age to remember Blossom the tv show...yeah.

traditionalguy said...

Maybe this Libyan Advisor will apply to Madonna for a part-time night job, to give Luz some rest. Next to Hillary, Madonna looks like a beauty pageant winner.

Curtiss said...

A hipster and spinster.

john said...

Did they pat him down for brass nuckles?

Or does diplomatic immunity apply?

goesh said...

Shiny brown suit is right - Disco Dan and his date - I seem to recall that gropers prefer the color brown and I note Madame Secretary is keeping a bit of distance there....

PatCA said...

Are you sure that's not Sacha Cohen?

Freeman Hunt said...

Are you sure that's not Sacha Cohen?

Beat me to it.

Freeman Hunt said...

Or maybe Cohen wrote Hillary's remarks...

"So, Mr. Minister, welcome so much here... you look very nice!!!"

Trooper York said...

Hillary's outfit is perfect appropriate for the occasion. It is smartly put together and a classic look.

On the other hand the Libyan dude looks like one of the Bee Gees. One of the ones that died that is.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Did he get an Ipod?

goesh said...

- does she covet that foot wide brown tie as a trophy for Bill???

Freeman Hunt said...

Maybe Hillary looked at him and couldn't help talking to him in Borat-speak.

Him: "Hello."
Her: "So, Mr. Minister, welcome so much here!" Damnit. Must stop...

rhhardin said...

Hillary has a troublesome hourglass shape to deal with. One of those all-day hourglasses.

AllenS said...

Hillary: "So, Mr. Minister, welcome so much here."

Qadhafi: "You too, not so much."

facom said...

They both hate Jews, so there you go.

Chip Ahoy said...

Look, it matches! Where haberdashery, geekdom, and psychopathy all come together in a Minister of Security .

Beta Conservative said...

Perhaps a paid ad for "Lowered Expectations"?

"You are cordially invited to the world's worst prom."

Curtiss said...

When that guy is on his iPhone, you can hear his suit in the background.

John Lynch said...

What a bizarre photo. It looks like art.

peter hoh said...

Fez from That 70s Show is all grown up, but he kept the wardrobe.

Lol Freeman. That's exactly the scene I'm picturing.

Hillary: "High five!" Shit!!

Re: Dr. ShinySuit: Doctor of what?

Father Martin Fox said...

He kinda looks like Neo would look like if he'd stayed and gone corporate in the Matrix instead of becoming "the One."

Irene said...

I've seen Hillary with the hairstyle recently. She sported that behind-the-ears-fuller-flippy look during the European tour. I think it's a wig or hairpiece. (I would know!)

John Lynch said...

It's like American Gothic.

bearbee said...

Chips photoshop?

What's he hiding behind his back?

Hoosier Daddy said...

What's he hiding behind his back?.

The RESET button Hillary gave him.

Dr. Mutassim Qadhafi: "Aha, ha, Hillary! Ha, you again. No more fighting, okay?"

Hillary: "Oh, you got it, Muta! Nice, shiny brown suit. You look like an Libyan tree."

Dr. Mutassim Qadhafi: "You like it? I got it in Tripoli, home of the shiny brown suit. Ha, ha, ha, ha."

Bissage said...

A top-secret photo has been smuggled out of Libya that shows terrorist mastermind Dr. Qadhafi illustrating his plan to attack the United States by way of international shipping from China.

Here it is.

For this, he should be captured and white-boarded until he shuts up!

Bissage said...

(Hat tip to Hoosier Daddy for the idea.)

Freeman Hunt said...

Doctor of what?

Awesomology, obviously.

Lem said...

That guy would make a convincing funeral director.

Lem said...

A front funeral director, harvesting body parts for the black market.

Freeman Hunt said...

Bissage, now it all makes sense! UPS gave him that suit.

Freeman Hunt said...

Fancy UPS. UPS 90210.

bearbee said...

So, Mr. Minister, welcome so much here.Clinton laying ground for a 2012 run, looking for Pennsylvania Dutch support.

David said...

Childbirth has made Freeman Hunt very funny. That baby must be laughing all the time.

Ern said...

He really ought to learn how to tie a tie. There are even sites on the web to teach him how to do that.

On the other hand, he does look more feminine than Hillary, not that that's hard to do.

Scott said...

I want to see what kind of footwear Dr. Mutassim Qadhafi is wearing. I'm betting they're snakeskin cuban heeled zip boots.

Given his look, I wouldn't be surprised to hear him explain to Hillary what they call a McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Libya.

And I'm sure Hillary thought she was practicing "Smart Diplomacy" when she retorted, "it's because of the metric system, right?"

john said...

I give up. A John Travolta cutout?

William said...

I'll take a wild guess that he is in some way related to the beloved leader Qaddafi. He got his present post after aceing a rigorous civil service exam. I also speculate that he got drunk a few times with the Saddam kids, Ofay and Queefey, and they clued him in as to where to find the best tailor. Perhaps Hillary will get him to release photos from the Libyan torture rooms to show that Obama's cleansing process is a global phenomenon and not just the work of some local, sanctimonious Democrats.

AllenS said...

If you look to the very left of the picture, you'll see part of the Libyan flag. Here's what I got from Wiki:

"The flag of Libya consists of a simple green field with no other characteristics. It is the only national flag in the world with just one color and no design, insignia, or other details."

Kind of explains his suit, doesn't it?

Eric said...

Jeez. This dude looks like some kind of dancer, or maybe a host at a posh restaurant.

John Lynch said...

She's kind of cute in a Laura Bush sort of way.

Jeremy said...

JSF said..."In 100 days, what has "smart diplomacy," achieved?"

And just when I thought JSF wasn't going to run away with the "I Be The Dumbest" award on this site...he hits us with this.

Here's an idiot who actually believes an administration, in a matter of 100 days, can point to immediate results from their diplomatic methods and actions...while we have ongoing military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Taliban pushing closer to the capital in Pakistan, the same simmering problems between Israel and Hamas...and an economic situation that has the entire world upside down.

And keep in mind, this fool says he attended American University...which is difficult to imagine.

Jeremy said...

All day yesterday we had Obama being trashed for wearing shorts while playing golf (WOW...can you imagine that??)...and now we get back to trashing Hillary.

And you wonder why the Republicans are are decomposing before our very eyes?

Deb said...

Nina would not approve. Too matchy-matchy.

kwood said...

A generation of 'adult children' who have absolutely no idea how to behave as real adults, make others feel welcome, be tactful and so on.

Sad? Funny?

Freeman Hunt said...

Jeremy, that guy stole your suit!

PatCA said...

Yeah, Freeman, that guy can't be serious...can he? LOL.

amba said...

Doesn't the chandelier look like water exploded out of her head?

former law student said...

I have the sneaking suspicion that Dr. Qadhafi is ahead of the style curve. In two years, we'll all be dressing like him.

Peter V. Bella said...

Maybe Hillary should hook up with Nutri-System. Nah, on second thought, who would believe her?

John Lynch said...

She married Bill for this?

John Lynch said...

For the first time, I feel so much sympathy for Hillary Clinton. What a long suffering woman. She must really love this country to take that job after all she's been through.

hdhouse said...

Perhaps you don't recognize a Secretary of State with a foreign leader who wasn't a buddy/buddy. That's what makes it difficult for the right wing here...aside from the fact that you don't have a Bush lapdog trotting the globe...someone who was completely ineffectual...and the proof is in the comments.

Why she's been SoS for 100 days....and she hasn't fixed anything that the inept Bush people managed to wreck in 8 years...huh huh huh pull my finger.

ya'betcha.

The 1980's called and said it wanted it's prom jacket and pants back.
