You musta beena beautiful baby…

Yeah. Sorry to do this to you for a second day, but I just cannot get enough of Moammar Kaddafi’s face. He looks like he’s carved out of a giant cube of decomposing luncheon meat.

Pimiento loaf, perhaps.

LOL… Looks like a character I saw on “Dr Who” a couple of years ago. The last true Earthling, who hijacked Rose’s young and healty body….

BBC/America ran a rerun of those episodes yesterday, “The Day the Earth Died“, or some such. Rose with that sweet overbite smile and well portrayed innocence was a perfect foil for Eccleston and the early Tennant Doctors….However, I’m still in love with Sarah Jane!

AND…Weasel, that portrayal has captured his full evil, stretched and twisted insanity.

SCOTTtheBADGER, DAMN!!!…66 years. Hats off to all the devil dog Marines who continue to choose to put themselves in harms way in defense of God, Country and Corp.

Huh. Looks pretty normal to me (for Kaddafi). Must be one of them subtle weasel things. But I’m having a hard time thinking of a better graphic than your Kaddafi in an inflatable ducky thing.

I heard on the radio (NPR, ugh) some wagging tongue saying that he couldn’t think of a crueler more oppressive regime than Kaddafi in Libya.

Yeah, right. Have you done Kim Jong Il lately? I would think a good old psycho group shot would look good. Kaddafi, Castro, Chavez, Il, Gore, Jimmeh Carter, etc.

I’m betting that Kadaffy will be decomposing for reals pretty soon.

Can I call dibs on him for the dead pool?

I’ve been wondering anyone had the dead pool in the dead pool.

To me, he looks pretty close to the Picture of Dorian Gray.


OK, that was a joke but dang, I forgot how creepy that picture was. Have to go off and shiver for a bit now….

Looses a Dictator? Huh- so What? These days you can get a used one at almost any lamp post in the middle east.

O, come now. Go hunt up some early pictures. You keep forgetting, he’s been there forty-two years come September. I’m the wrong one to ask if a man’s attractive, but my mirror tells me every day that I’m the worse for wear since 1969.

I hope there’s somebody around, maybe with a time machine, who’s documenting every moment of his career. Every stereotype, every cliche, every preconceived notion of what a medal-jingling, faux-military dictator is there, from the “bloodless coup” through the jingling medals to the pretense of humility — “Colonel” he was (if self-promoted) when he took over, and “Colonel” he remained to the bitter end. He invented some of the cliches, and I’d swear he did a lot of it on purpose. Female bodyguards, in an Arab/Islamic culture? Can anybody find pictures? What did their uniforms look like?

Performance art, is what it was and is. It wouldn’t surprise me if he could sing the entire libretto of Pirates of Penzance — “I am the very model of a modern Arab op-pres-sor!” Too nasty to laugh at, too showy to ignore, at once too vicious to live and too ineffectual to do anything about, blinding gold braid in the middle of Western business suits, jumpsuits with subtle insignia around the Sultans and kings. You can’t tell me he didn’t know exactly what he was doing and plan it all out.

His reign will be studied in detail for centuries, some trying to prevent repeats, some looking for pointers, but most simply wowed by the artistry of it all. Anybody who could actually admire the man needs to be investigated closely, but you have to admit, the Robert Mapplethorpes of the world are pipsqueaks, scrabbling voles to Qaddafi’s soaring hawk. It’s the longest, nastiest, edgiest performance ever, and must be appreciated on that basis.

I’ve always thought of him as a kind of Bond villain. Without the cat.

Well then, if he doesn’t like CATS, he can’t be ALL bad!

Okay, I simply had to post that verbal description in it’s own thread over at GCP.
