Moammar Gadhafi and his unrequited love

Libyan rebels pawing through the Tripoli compound of Moammar Gadhafi have stumbled on some odd things, as might be expected. One guy made off with Gadhafi’s famous hat and scepter.

They also seemed to enjoy rubbing the bottom of their shoes on Gadhafi’s face.

But the most disconcerting discovery may be the extensive photo album found in Gadhafi’s quarters featuring picture after picture of former Secretary of State Condi Rice.

The apparent fixation with our former secretary of state isn’t breaking news. As The Guardian noted in reporting about Rice’s 2008 visit to Libya:

“In an interview with al-Jazeera television last year, Gadafy spoke of Rice in unusual terms, calling her “Leezza”. “I support my darling black African woman,” he said. “I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders … Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. … I love her very much. I admire her and I’m proud of her because she’s a black woman of African origin.”

After that meeting, Gadhafi gave Rice a diamond ring in a wooden box, a lute and a locket containing Gadhafi’s picture, later valued by the U.S. government at a total of $212,225. (Rice kept none of the gifts).

So you couldn’t blame Rice if she’s feeling a little creeped out by the discovery of the photo album.

From the AP-2009- Now even Gaddafi know about Obama’s reverse Midas touch———–
“Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi, who former president Ronald Reagan once denounced as a “mad dog,” supped on pasta just two seats away from President Obama at the Group of Eight summit today and even secured a handshake with the U.S. president.”

For all the braying by the Senate’s top three hawks about how the U.S. wasn’t doing enough to oust Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Qaddafi from power, one might be surprised to learn that exactly two years ago, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were in Tripoli meeting with the erratic leader and giving him assurances that relations between the nations were on the mend.

According to a leaked August 2009 U.S. diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks recounting the Senators’ junket, the neoconservative Connecticut Senator captured the dynamic of aligning with a brutal dictator:

Lieberman called Libya an important ally in the war on terrorism, noting that common enemies sometimes make better friends.

Gee Jay – Nothing important to report on today, I guess. Slow news day for bedwetting liberal editorial writers, I suppose.

Here’s some good stuff for ya!

President Obama calls his own actions “unpatriotic”

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.“

Oh when did he say this you ask? July 3, 2008 as Candidate for President.

The problem with campaign speeches is that they can come back and bite you in the butt.

Not new. But it’s funny you should mention that, because it brought to mind a bit of web surfing done over the weekend to help explain the Gettysburg address to my kid, whereupon I came to see this, from the wiki page on the topic:

[P]ublic reaction to the speech was divided along partisan lines. The next day the Democratic-leaning Chicago Times observed, “The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dishwatery utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States.” In contrast, the Republican-oriented New York Times was complimentary. The Springfield, Ma. Republican newspaper printed the entire speech, calling it “a perfect gem” that was “deep in feeling, compact in thought and expression, and tasteful and elegant in every word and comma.”

’twas ever thus, folks.

Nice touch on the copy and paste. You raise an important issue.

Nations seem to never allow themselves to think long term. They always look at the present. They refuse to realize that the present always determines the future.

So guns and ammo & chemical weapons sent to Saddam to shoot at Iran gets shot back at us in the Gulf War.

Rockets sent to Afghanistan to shoot down Russian helicopters get used to shoot down US helicopters 30 years later.

If so–from what I have read about the typical Democratic opposition newspapers (and much worse, the anonymous pamphleteers) and their take on Lincoln, a man they routinely referred to as an “ape” who was putting young men into a meat grinder so that freed slaves could ravish their wives and sisters…

It was plenty amplified, back then. Those of us who are troubled by a few “Obozos” or “Chimpys” or what-have-you, spat out by some anonymous commenter here in the early 21st century, need to remember that, is all I’m saying.

md @ 1.34, that’s all true.

But I think we had just a fairly brief golden news-dissemination age, of sorts, perhaps from post-McCarthy’s comeuppance until the dawning of the Internet era, or perhaps just until FCC regs were relaxed in the 80s, and media consolidation started decimating independent news staffs and eliminating a lot of local programming.

There was a time, though, that many here remember, when there was a fairly bright line between news, news analysis, and editorial. No TV or radio station would broadcast editorials without at least providing some semblance of a response from an opposing view. No self-respecting major newspaper would fill most of its pages with other wire services; content consisted much more of their own reporters with their own local perspectives.

Sure, the result was somewhat sanitized, and shriller voices weren’t heard quite so much, but I do think it made possible some genuinely progressive (in the non-partisan sense of the term) societal changes, that would be much harder to duplicate today as we’ve gone back to a more fractured existence.
