News Makes Funny All By Itself

Libya's Gaddafi lectures U.S. on democracy - I know, I had to read that headline about three or four times as well.

He touted Libya's political system as superior to "farcical" and "fake
parliamentary and representative democracies in the West."

If by "superior" he means "worse in every possible humanitarian way" then I totally agree with him. 100%.

Libya's Jamahiriyah system, under which Libyans can air their views at
"people's congresses," is genuine democracy, said Gaddafi, who spoke through a
translator and was dressed in purple robes and seated at a desk in front of a
map of Africa. He ate a live puppy with a fork and spoon and said
"plus, we can do this. So we've got that going for us as well."


Ok, so maybe I put that last quote in there. But I'm pretty sure it happened.

Gaddafi said Libya's new openness would not lead Libyans to covet what they do
not have -- on the contrary, he said, the rest of the world would soon be
emulating Libya.
"Countries like the United States, India, China, the Russian
Federation, are in bad need of this Jamahiriyah system," he said. "This is a
savior to them."
Yes. Yes I am seeing your point, and I am in complete agreement with you. Now, just lie down and drink more of your special blue Kool-Aid and everything will be juuust fine. What a loon.

Yes, I can see it now. After some 230 years of this ridiculous democracy experiment, Libya steps up to show us that what we've really been missing is a whole bunch of big public meetings.

Now, I'm no psychologist. But usually, when a person boldly denounces and excludes others, it's because he really feels lonely and wishes to be included by those he mocks. Instead of being offended, maybe we should reach out and say "hey Libya, you guys are a-okay!"

In the words of the immortal super-group Nelson, he just needs some of our "Love and affection."

Rock stars, is there anything they don't know?
