Has Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi followed in former Ugandan Dictator Idi Amin’s footsteps and contracted a case of syphilis induced dementia? How else to explain the following comments uttered at the Arab Summit in Doha? Gadhafi began by calling Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah a ”British product and American ally.” Not too outrageous given their previous scraps. But then when asked to shush, he went ballistic, demonstrating the extent of his craziness:

I am an international leader, the dean of the Arab rulers, the king of kings of Africa and the imam of Muslims, and my international status does not allow me to descend to a lower level

International leader? King of Kings? What? Well at least he got one thing right – the former revolutionary blowhard and now neutered ally of Western Oil companies indeed cannot “descend to a lower level.”

After his outburst, Gadhafi stormed out and took a tour of an Islamic museum. Uhm. Yeah.
