Gaddafi Resorts to Obamunism

Is there nothing beneath unhinged Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi? In desperation, he has resorted to behaving like a Democrat. ABC’s preposterous Christiane Amanpour reports:

At just about every bank we saw, there were long lines of men and women waiting for the cash handouts that Col. Moammar Gadhafi had just announced.

The leader was giving each family 500 dinars, the equivalent of about $450. For most people here, that covers salary for a month or two.

As we walked up with our cameras to talk to them, many burst into pro-Gadhafi chants once they realized we were visiting journalists. They were friendly, although some complained to the government minder with us that they had been waiting in line for hours and still had not received their handouts.

Let me guess: the handouts are “economic stimulus” and will be financed with money borrowed from China.
