The UN: A stage for lunatics

And from Muammar Gaddafi, a prize lunatic we have:Add an Image

On the audience (after speaking for quite a while):
“Please can I have your attention. All of you are tired, having jet lag. … You are tired. All of you are asleep.”

Barack Obama (who he kept referring to as “my son”):
“We are happy that a young African Kenyan was voted for and made president. Obama is a glimpse in the dark for the next four years, but I’m afraid we may go back to square one. Can you guarantee that after Obama that America will be different? We would be happy if Obama could stay forever as the president of America.”

“Why are we against the Taliban? Why are we against Afghanistan? If the Taliban wants to make a religious state, okay, like the Vatican. Does the Vatican constitute a danger against us? No. If the Taliban wants to create an Islamic emirate, who said they are the enemy?”

I expect Obama, the glimpse in the dark, is gratified that his father is with him – comparing the Taliban to the Vatican – on his first appearance at the United Nuthouse.
