Qaddafi, Chavez, Etc.

Dan Drezner notes that Libya’s weirdo-in-chief is not happy about being deposed as head of the African Union. I just have to ask, what kind of continent chooses Muammar Qaddafi as its spokesman anyhow?

Probably a continent with so many problems that are so much worse it doesn’t care if Qaddafi is its nominal representative. If Hugo Chavez is ever chosen as Supreme Guru of the Western Hemisphere, it will only be because things are already so awful we just stopped caring.

(Btw, Dan, you spelled Qaddafi’s name three different ways in a single post.)
