Gaddafi: "All My People Love Me!"

Does this guy look like someone they just hauled into the drunk tank at 3 a.m. or what? Who would have thought he's been running a country for 41 years?  But hey, he says his people love him and in the end, isn't that what really matters?

Gaddafi says 'all my people love me'

"Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has told the BBC he is loved by all his people and has denied there have been any protests in Tripoli. Col Gaddafi said that his people would die to protect him.He laughed at the suggestion he would leave Libya and said that he felt betrayed by the world leaders who had urged him to quit. US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said the interview showed Col Gaddafi was "delusional" and "unfit to lead." World foreign ministers earlier condemned attacks on Libyan civilians and the European Union imposed sanctions including an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel ban on Col Gaddafi and his close entourage. Col Gaddafi is facing a massive challenge to his 41-year rule, with protesters in control of towns in the east."

I can't wait until he hosts Saturday Night Live! Hey, all you need is love, baby!
