Arab Olympics

All the Arabs are having a contest to see who will be the next to topple a despot.

Seif al-Islam Gaddafi would look really good hanging from the business end of a meathook.  All these guys have to calculate that there will eventually be no place to hide.  The entire Gaddafi family has already committed enough crimes in repressing the revolution to spend the rest of their lives in jail.  Had they left immediately - and there are rumors that Moammar has fled to Venezuela (unlikely, as I doubt Venezuela would have him) - they could have kept much of their looted billions and stayed out of jail.  Something for other despots to think about.

The facts start to ooze out about the 'sexual assault' of Lara Logan.  Reading between the lines, it looks like she had her expensive dress ripped, and suffered a few taps from a pole (oh, and despite Jewish whistling past the graveyard, the average Egyptian really, really hates Israel - reminds me of Dershowitz' ludicrous attempts to claim bin Laden didn't care about the Palestinians), leaving us with about the level of accuracy from the American mainstream media that we've come to know and love.  Of course, once the words 'sexual assault' are uttered, the sisterhood of the victimhood steps in to make any questioning of the details beyond the pale.
