He’ll huff, and he’ll puff, and blow you off..even if you turn off his mike

In life, there are few certainties, but just as birds got fly and bees got to sting – what would an Arab Leadership Summit be without our man Daffy pitching a fit and walking out? Ha’aretz:
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi stormed out of an Arab summit on Monday after denouncing the Saudi king and declaring himself "the dean of Arab rulers." Gadhafi disrupted the opening Arab League summit in Qatar by taking a microphone and criticizing Saudi's King Abdullah, calling him a "British product and American ally."

When the Qatari emir tried to quiet him, the Libyan leader and current Africa Union chairman insisted he be allowed to speak. "I am an international leader, the dean of the Arab rulers, the king of kings of Africa and the imam (leader) of Muslims, and my international status does not allow me to descend to a lower level," Gadhafi said.

He then got up and walked out of the summit hall. The Libyan leader is known for his unpredictable behavior, and it's not clear whether he will rejoin the two-day summit aimed at ending Arab feuds.

Imagine – how he would act if he had Alzheimer’s? On second thought, I don’t think we’d all know the difference….
