As Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice makes an historic visit to Libya today, it’s interesting to note how that country’s leader, once labeled “The Mad Dog of the Middle East” by Ronald Reagan, feels about her.
Speaking to the Al Jazeera network last year, Mr. Qaddafi got downright gushy when asked about Ms. Rice. “I support my darling black African woman,” he said. “I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders.”
He continued: “Yes, Leezza, Leezza, Leezza,” and said, “I love her very much.”
Now if I could just get a message to Condi to bring back that dinner jacket.
