Gadhafi Had A Crush On Condi

Which is weirder–finding porn in Osama bin Laden’s compound following his death, or finding tons of photos of Condoleezaa Rice in Moammar Gadhafi’s compound? We might have predicted this after Gadhafi talked about Rice in an interview with Al-Jazeera television in 2007:

“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. … Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. … I love her very much. I admire her, and I’m proud of her, because she’s a black woman of African origin.”

Interview with Karen Gillan

Interview with Karen Gillan on the final episodes of Doctor Who for this season. Gillan also repeated an earlier statement that she will be returning next season, but there was no mention as to whether it will be on a regular basis. Other comments suggest that Amy and Rory might be returning on an intermittent basis as opposed to being the regular companions.

Pat Robertson says Crack In Washington Monument Is A Sign From God

Pat Robertson in the video above: “Ladies and gentlemen I don’t want to get weird on this so please take it for what it’s worth. But it seems to me the Washington Monument is a symbol of America’s power, it has been the symbol of our great nation, we look at that monument and say this is one nation under God. Now there’s a crack in it, there’s a crack in it and it’s closed up. Is that a sign from the Lord? Is that something that has significance or is it just result of an earthquake? You judge, but I just want to bring that to your attention. It seems to me symbolic. When Jesus was crucified and when he died the curtain in the Temple was rent from top to bottom and there was a tear and it was extremely symbolic, is this symbolic? You judge.”

We might compare this to the fictional, but equally implausible, explanation seen on last season’s television show, The Event. Aliens created destruction in Washington, D.C. as a warning to the American government.

GOP Wants Joe the Plumber To Run For Congress

As if we don’t already have enough people who are bat-shit crazy in Republican politics, including several candidates for the GOP presidential nomination, now Republicans are  urging Joe the Plumber to run for Congress. The Toledo Blade reports:

Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, is considering a run against U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur in 2012, according to Republican Party sources.

Jon Stainbrook, chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party, said there is “high-level interest in the national Republican Party” in a potential Wurzelbacher candidacy.

“We are encouraging Joe to run,” Mr. Stainbrook said. “He hasn’t made any official decision yet.”

Chris Maloney, spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party, said a candidate like Mr. Wurzelbacher would have strong fund-raising capabilities thanks to national recognition he received during the 2008 presidential campaign, but added such star power would have to be weighed against the advantages of experience that someone like a state legislator could bring to the race.

Mr. Wurzelbacher wouldn’t confirm or deny a congressional run. “I think it’s a very interesting idea,” he said Tuesday. “That’s as much as I can say.”

One GOP source put the chances of Mr. Wurzelbacher running against Miss Kaptur at “90 percent.”
