Sockpuppets Revolt!

“Members of Libya’s mission to the United Nations renounced Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi on Monday, calling him a genocidal war criminal responsible for mass shootings of demonstrators protesting against his four decades in power. They called upon him to resign.” [NYT, via Political Wire]


Those brave diplomats can see which way the wind is blowing. Plus, this way they get to stay in NYC and see “Spiderman.”

Libyan ambassador just on BBC – decided to stop supporting Qaddafi after 40 years or so … a brave stand!

@blogenfreude: No kidding. They can’t stay unless they bring back the head of Qaddafi.

@Mistress Cynica: Here’s another version that’s even more awesome for the threads.

Also, a supercool version of one of the greatest surf songs ever, Pipeline by the Ventures. (Lookit them guitars!)

This reminds me of a ww2 book I read titled The German Generals Talk, featuring interviews with the Generals that survived both the war and their subsequent captivity. It’s a good read, but it quickly came to mind that there weren’t many German Generals talking when Hitler was still alive. When a finally sober Goering was asked at Nuremberg if there were any dissenters during the war, he answered “not above ground”.
