"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

some moments are priceless

Seems Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently met with Libyan national security adviser Mutassim Qadhafi. This is part of the continuing thaw in U.S.-Libyan relations that's been going on for a few years now. But who's kidding who? Oil, terrorism, and the domination of Africa were clearly not the real issue at this meeting. And I think we all know who won the battle for the sassier-looking pantsuit.
