Posted on 10/21/2011 2:03:51 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Col. Moammar Gadhafi, the dictator who ruled Libya for 42 years, was killed by rebels in his hometown of Sirte on Thursday. A dictator who oppressed his own people and sponsored terrorism abroad, Gadhafi's legacy will be stained by violence. But beyond his brutality, Gadhafi will be remembered for something else entirely… being a first-class weirdo.

In no particular order, ABCNews.com brings you the seven weirdest things about Moammar Gadhafi.

3. His "Voluptuous" Ukrainian Nurse

 

He may have been ka-daffy. But he sure appreciated beautiful women.

We heard that he was "mean" also.

So we helped take him out.

Sounds like abc/Disney is still pimpin’ Barack the Assassin’s big “victory” in Libya. If I hadn’t seen the video, I’d believe the part about Quadaffi being “killed” by the “rebels”. Unfortunately, was I saw was a murder being committed by a bunch of “peace sign”-flashing, two bit street punks. If I was one of “the rich” in America right now, I’d be a little concered and start worrying about all of this “beheading” rhetoric being spewed by the commie wannabes here. These commie bass turds are starting to get serious.

As far as I know, he didn’t have a blog.

At least he’s got that going for him.

The oddest things about his costumes aren’t the robes... That’s pretty African stuff on the whole and after the MidEast dissed him he was going for “King of Africa.”

No - what always got me were the battle honors and medals.

What is that - the Strathcona Medal? And what’s that one - the Victoria Cross or something? As well as the Pour La Merite? And what the heck do all those bars mean? Some of his outfits had HUNDREDS of them! What - the Ice Cream Revolt at the Cul-de-Sac? The Tractor Press-Conference Melee? The Skirmish at Prickly Beaver? I always wondered if they had any meaning to him.

Well, I think the weirdest thing about Gaddahfi is that his mother was Jewish and his father was Italian. I read that somewhere in the last month.

That is her face, but it appears photoshopped onto that body. All the same, I have seen photos of her body, and her body does look that way.

I think they did this because they wanted a photo that showcased both her face and body well 2gether.

She’s totally amazing and they have interviewed her several times —I believe she escaped back to the Ukraine a couple days after the bombing began.

She disputes any notion that the nurses had any sexual relationship with him, although I doubt that.

Go back and review the video of him being hauled out of the truck (before he is killed). At one point his shirt comes up and he is wearing a bra.

How about The Seven Weirdest Things about Russell Goldman and NBC News?

Three of the primary reasons that the Muslim fanatics killed him was that he dressed women in uniforms, let them walk around without burkhas, and gave jobs to black Africans.

"Name of deceased?"

"Gad.."

"No it's "Kha.."

"I thought it was Qa.."

"What do you think guys? Unmarked grave?"

It's good to be king, until you get killed by a US President in an attempt to destabilize the mid-east and give your country to more radical Islamists intent on destroying the USA and Israel.

Here’s a man who had the audacity to say

“This is the ‘Line of Death’. You cross it, you die.”

“Okay, you cross this line, you die.”

“Okay, you cross this line, you die.”

“This line, you die.”

“Okay, you’re knocking on my door, I’m not coming out. Naaaaah”

If Gaderffii was the autocratic ruler of Libya, then why didn’t he promote himself past Colonel?

I don’t see anything weird about leopard-skin robes and pillbox hats over chartreuse trousers. Sort of a nice, comfortable working outfit, actually. If you work at Barnum & Bailey, that is.

With all the medals and such he didn’t want to appear to be too ostentatious. (sarc)

He was a very visual man on many levels including his medals and outfits. The women part is obvious. He was a lover of the feminine and sex. I don’t fault him for that. If I could I would create of world of my own fantasy as he did but with dudes. haha. I do however fault him for all those innocent lives lost. Go figure.

"If I was one of “the rich” in America right now, I’d be a little concered and start worrying about all of this “beheading” rhetoric being spewed by the commie wannabes here. These commie bass turds are starting to get serious."

The OWS is the best thing that will happen to the Republicans this election cycle. The louder they get, the more independents will hear and say "WTF? Is this the Democrats?"

If they go all crazy and start rioting and killing, the excuse then exists to "resettle" all the Dims "to the East" ala as a Final Solution to the Socialist Problem. The application of Uragan D2 as a disinfecting and delousing agent is recommended.

It's win/win.

A: I should have endorsed McCain.

Interesting article. Reminds me of what CS Lewis wrote about the everlasting sameness of tyrants and dictators, as opposed to those who lead simple, moral, and upright lives -
“Sameness is to be found most among the most “natural” men, not among those who surrender to Christ. How monotonously alike all the great tyrants and conquerors have been: how gloriously different are the saints.”

Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong, and Gaddafi... all cut from the same cloth, all with the same greeds and lusts and terrors, paranoias and sociopathologies.

“2. All-Female Virgin Bodyguard Retinue

3. His “Voluptuous” Ukrainian Nurse “

Can anyone explain why either of those things are “weird”?

I have to admit that “Bunga Bunga” sounds interesting too.
