Two Funny Things

1. How great was Qaddafi today? I mean, classic. The Guardian has the best re-cap:

He tore up a copy of the UN charter in front of startled delegates, accused the security council of being an al-Qaida like terrorist body, called for George Bush and Tony Blair to be put on trial for the Iraq war, demanded $7.7tn in compensation for the ravages of colonialism on Africa and wondered whether swine flu was a biological weapon created in a military laboratory. At one point, he even demanded to know who was behind the killing of JFK.

All in all, a pretty ordinary 100 minutes in the life of the colonel.

2. Moving onto Lebanon, Qifa Nabki again cracks me up with his "unique" take on Lebanese politics.
