Gaddafi loves Condi Rice


Okay, this is hilarious. The rebels who overtook the compound of now-on-the-lam Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi have discovered a photo album of pictures of Condoleeza Rice. Not since a massive November 2010 police raid in a Rio slum revealed a mural of Justin Bieber in the home of a drug lord have we seen something so comical, so odd, so delicious.

MSNBC.com has pictures of the photo album with the perfectly coiffed Rice. A September 2008 story in The Post recounts Rice’s visit to Moammar Gaddafi’s compound and how the Libyan leader affectionately called her “Leezza.” As the story notes, Gaddafi loved him some Rice.

“She beckons to the Arab foreign ministers, and they come to her, either in groups or individually. . . . 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.”

I cannot WAIT to hear what “Leezza” has to say about this.
