Amanpour: Hi I’m in Libya - Who could write the crazy rants and ravings of Muammar Gadhafi - except Charlie Sheen, of course
Sheen: magic poet Vatican assassin bitch!
Amanpour: I’m on a flight from London to Libya - surprisingly uncrowded
Amanpour: in fact there a thousands of people at the airport - the place is littered with garbage and strewn with starving stranded passengers desperate to get out
Audience: so it’s like Newark airport at Thanksgiving
Amanpour: anti-government protestors are firing guns in the air and are openly mocking Gadhafi
Amanpour: I spoke with Gadhafi’s son Saif -
Obama says Moammur should quit
Saif: We’re holed up in Tripoli and we’re loving it
Amanpour: you say you’re not using violence but why are so many people are being killed
Saif: oh that never happened
Amanpour: why is everybody fleeing the regime
like rats off a ship
Saif: because the ship is sinking
Amanpour: I see
Saif: my enemies are losing - you can’t understand process it because I have magic and poetry in
Amanpour: maybe you should have reformed Libya before the rebellion
Saif: gee I wish I had fucking thought of that Christiane
Amanpour: you were supposed to be a reformer
Saif: the same assholes who stopped me from reforming and now fleeing Libya - fuck those
Amanpour: you seem somewhat out of touch
Saif: I’m a Vatican ninja assassin
Amanpour: what about freezing your Swiss bank accounts
Saif: there’s not such things - we’re surrounded
by fools and trolls

Amanpour: will Libya sanctions affect you?
Saadi: I can’t travel - it sucks!
Amanpour: so what will you do now?
Saadi: I need a good lawyer - Dershowitz won’t return my calls!
Amanpour; why are you so upset?
Saadi: I just want a normal life
Amanpour: Other people in Libya want a normal
Saadi: those selfish bastards
Amanpour: what is going on the Middle East?
Saadi: it’s total chaos everywhere
Amanpour: what about freedom?
Saadi: the little people can’t handle freedom
Amanpour: what about your Dad?
Saadi: he’s totally fucked
Amanpour: you lived in Europe where people
Saadi: no they have health care so it’s really socialism or really enslavement
Amanpour: is it hard being Gaddafi’s son?
Saadi: the man is a deranged lunatic but he never forgets a birthday

Bowen: the rebels are taking over the country
Amanpour: can they take over Tripoli?
Bowen: oh no they’re just localized rebels -
like on Tatooine
Amanpour: Jake is revolution in the Middle East bad for America?
Tapper: well you could argue democracy is a good thing - on the other hand the price of oil might go
up a penny
Amanpour: well fuck it then
Tapper: also there are some very cooperative dictators around here
Kagan: we’re paying the price now for being too cozy with dictators
Amanpour: maybe but some of them are so nice
Kagan: if we claim democracy and human rights
are universal values then why not for muslims and arabs too?
Amanpour: who are these wacky young Arabs -
do they love America?
Aslan: they’re all virtual and transcend time and space - they live on Facebook and realize they don’t have to support these old dictators
Amanpour: Is Iran the real winner with all these revolutions?
Kagan: why should this movement bypass Iran? That regime is on borrowed time!
Amanpour: What about our good friends in Saudi Arabia?
Tapper: the White House is telling our remaining friends to get out of ahead of reform or they’re going to end of dangling from a lamppost
Aslan: the kids in Iran started a revolution in 2009 and now it’s going to come full circle
Amanpour: ok forget Iran - is this good for al-qaeda?
Kagan: the kids demanding democracy and freedom don’t like the message of hate coming from al-qaeda which is why we need to send troops to Tripoli
