Muammar Gaddafi with his jet-black hair + black brimless flat-top hat = droopy Mickey Mouse ears.
I used to have Mickey Mouse ears. Also had a devil Halloween costume with a pointy red tail that I used for pajamas when Halloween was over. I used to run around the house with both the mouse ears and the devil tail pants until the tail fell off the pants and the ensemble was ruined.
That's what Gaddafi reminds me of.
This WaPo report will have to do for now:
[W]hen it came to America's 44th president, Gaddafi offered only warm words, calling him "our son" and "our Obama," and saying, "The election of Obama is the beginning of change."...Oh, there's almost no text in that article. I want the words of the Moammar Mouse. Dammit. I'm going to have to resort to the Rush Limbaugh show transcript (which I listened to on the podcast this afternoon as I drowsed on my Limbesque drugs):
KHADAFY: This is an historic event. One day the black doesn't go where the whites go and cannot be in a bus where the whites is, now the American people, the black African Kenyan voted for him and made him a president, this is a great thing. We're proud of that. You are the beginning of a change. He did go for a change but as far as I'm concerned Obama is a glimpse in the dark for the four years or the next eight years and I'm afraid that we may go back to square one. How can you guarantee America after Obama? Can you guarantee after Obama how America will be governed? No one can guarantee America. We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as a President of America.Ranting about a rant. That makes sense. On drugs.
RUSH: Now, what are we supposed to do here as American citizens? Here is this lunatic who openly applauded the return of the Lockerbie bomber, had his own son escort the bomber back from the UK, gets off the plane out there in Libya, through a cheering throng, this lunatic shows up today, makes a speech, "We love Barack Obama, and we want Barack Obama to be president forever. If he can't be president forever it's back to square one." He's talking about our president....
RUSH: Folks, now, don't forget, I'm holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers, it's actually a YouTube video, we got a transcript of it here, of June 11, 2008, and in it Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy says that Obama suffers an inferiority complex that might make him behave whiter than the white. And the inferiority complex that he suffers is that he's really a Muslim but he can't admit it. So Khadafy, you know, right out of the Star Wars bar scene today up there making a speech, "We love Obama, president forever, black man in Africa, our son." Now, you gotta keep in mind that Khadafy keeps calling him our son, Kenyan, Khadafy says he's a Muslim. Now, I'm wondering, did the Obama administration go to Khadafy today and say, "Look, do not celebrate Obama, it is not going to be helpful, Moammar, if you go out there and celebrate Obama." Just like they told him, "Look, the deal is, we're going to release the Lockerbie bomber, but you don't have a celebration for the guy," and they did do that, and Khadafy flipped 'em off.
Maybe the Obama administration did go to him and say, "Look, Moammar, we love you, man, but you can't start praising Obama. You can't start praising him because it's not going to help us." Maybe they did it and he just didn't listen to them like he ignored them on the Lockerbie thing. If I'd gone to the United Nations and made a speech and I've got Moammar Khadafy following me praising it, I'd really question myself. I would ask if somebody injected me with some mind altering poison. It doesn't seem to bother these guys.
