    MSNBC says he might be looking to go to Tunisia. (And, I went with their spelling.)

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    You'd think that at this point at editor at the NYT or whereever would have said, "Hey, the next time you see him, ask him how his goddamned name is spelled."

    You also can ask him why, in his 41 years of being a dictator, he still hasn't been able to advance past the rank of Colonel.

    Wait a minute, I thought he promised that they would have to kill him to get rid of him?

    So he's just another politician who can't keep his promises?

    Imagine if we could do that with all of our dethroned leaders. Congress included.

    Rebels just consolidated Brega. They're advancing on Tripoli on three sides.

    So which leader is failing now?

    You do understand why there are different acceptable spellings, right? The whole Arabic-has-a-different alphabet thing and people transliterate words using different English letters?

    Is Hell accepting or expecting? Talk about poor spelling. Either way, at least Khaddafy will have a home.

    It's originally an Arabic word, so there are different acceptable spellings.

    Gunfire in Tripoli.

    Could this really be the beginning of the end?

    If it is, I hope they capture/kill him and he's not able to flee into exile.

    Even if it is, the rebels will need weeks to actually secure the place. What Qaddafi forces are left after all this will probably fight to the last man and take whomever they can with them.

    Of course, it could all go a lot smoother if this is, as the rebels claim, a joint operation with NATO.
