    Since completing his transition from international pariah
    to statesman, Colonel Muammar Qaddafi—the longest-serving
    leader in both Africa and the Arab world—has brought color
    and his own eccentric panache to the drab circuit of international
    summits and conferences. Drawing upon the influences of Lacroix,
    Liberace, Phil Spector (for hair), Snoopy, and Idi Amin, Libya’s
    leader—now in his 60s—is simply the most unabashed dresser on
    the world stage. We pay homage to a sartorial genius of our time.

    Fashion is what really is at stakes in this crucial moment.
    Qaddafi's wardrobe must be preserved, no matter the outcome
    of the current dispute in Libya.

    Discuss!

    It's hard to decide whether Gaddafi or Kim Jong-Il has the most fashionable look.

    I dare you to produce evidence to back up your
    insulting hesitation in front of the obvious.

    I double dare you!

    Well, you gotta give it to the man: those sunglasses are simply out of this world.

    Maybe we should put it to a vote. - Not that either leader would approve of such a democratic procedure, but ...

    ... who cares? Let's do it!

    Can we convince Russ to include it in the vote system?

    Edit. I did it. Ball is rolling...

    I wonder if Qaddafi could donate some of his fabulous hats.
