Gadhafi’s Fairly Unconvincing ‘I’m Still in Charge’ Speech Setting

The situation in Libya with Gaddafi continues to deteriorate:

Deep rifts opened in Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, with Libyan government officials at home and abroad resigning, air force pilots defecting and a bloody crackdown on protest in the capital of Tripoli, where cars and buildings were burned. Gadhafi went on state TV early Tuesday to attempt to show he was still in charge.

Amid reports that Gadhafi fled Tripoli for Venezuela and an inevitable power lunch with Sean Penn, Quadaffi chose an unusual setting to reassure Libya that he was still in the country and in charge. He appeared in a car wearing a Cousin Eddy hat holding an umbrella and speaking into a microphone swiped from Bob Barker:

That doesn’t exactly scream “the palace is secure.”

The video clip of Kadafi’s address lasted less than a minute, which for Qhaddaphi is about nine hours shorter than it usually takes him to give a waiter his lunch order, let alone deliver a speech — so something’s up.

And as the bombs fell, people revolted, gunshots rang out and hundreds were being killed in the violence, what prevented Kadaffy from delivering a more formal address?

he told an interviewer that he had wanted to go to the capital’s Green Square to talk to his supporters, but the rain stopped him.

Rain. At least everyone now knows his weakness.
