This too shall pass.
You gotta admit it... From Talking Points Memo:
Yesterday I was catching running updates on the Gaddafi story from the twitter feed of al Arabiya English. At one point Gaddafi's son Saadi announced that his father had empowered him to negotiate a 'cease-fire' with the rebels. Later, Gaddafi himself declared that he now wants to join the new rebel government. (I mean, he's a lifelong public servant, has a lot of management experience running Libya ... so why not?) Both of which -- for a man who not only no longer appears to control anything but can't even be located -- are of course awesome.
... I mean, why's he even worried? He's Gaddafi. This too shall pass. And it's all good, regardless.
