"Condi Rice Photos Are Moammar Gaddafi's Dictator Porn of Choice."
One of the things about being ousted from power is that it's a lot like dying; if you aren't prepared for it, people are going to find some embarrassing things in your left behind stuff. In the case of Moammar G or K or Q or whatever, that means "a big ol' catalogue of fap fuel made up of Condoleezza Rice photo scrapbooks hidden in his torture castle."
It's not like there weren't clues. "I support my darling black African woman," he said in a 2007 Al Jazeera interview. "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." Oh yeah, crack that whip, baby. Make those Arab leaders beg!
"I think I don't need to see the photos, but bizarre and creepy are good adjectives to describe much of Gadhafi's behavior," said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. "It doesn't surprise me. It's deeply bizarre and deeply creepy, though, if it is as you described."
To this blog's knowledge, this is the first time in history the State Department commented on photos stashed under a guy's mattress. (Wonkette, MSNBC)
