I am sure you have some gems from politicians who speak before they think LOL I have decided not to monopolize what we have enjoyed in THE Middle East in the last few weeks … Really out from the womb of tragedy , you see and hear some humor that you can't but laugh at while you cry. Qaddafi has become a regional champion of comedy while he slaughtered his people. He was always a clown, that's for sure, but these weeks he has lost it all. Some of his gems got to be shared around the world. - When he heard of Boazizi burning himself and the demonstrations starting in Tunisia. He started to threaten his own people of doing the same : Qaddafi said : ( anyone burning himself will be jailed for 5 years !) After the protests started in Egypt , Qaddafi said : ( I am not a dictator to shut down Facebook, but anyone logging in will be jailed!!) After some Lybians started calling for demonstrations in Lybia, Qaddafi said : ( I will demonstrate with the people against the corrupt government ) After it looked like protests are not limited to one demonstration Qaddafi said : (Demonstrate as you wish , but do not come out to the streets !!) Trying to educate his people not to be "cheated" by the media Qaddafi said : (throw "Kleenex" behind your back) ....… He meant : Wiki-Leaks In his earlier speeches, he said: - The difference between men and women is that men are male and women are female !! - Women have the right to nominate themselves for parliment whether they are male or female !! - If it wasn't for electric power, we would be watching TV in total darkness. - The one major reason for divorce .. is marriage !! There you go . Some of Qaddafi's humor before it is gone forever.
