Wives of Toppled Tyrants Would Make for Great TV

Colonel Gaddafi’s days are numbered.  His 42-year reign of terror is likely over.  And as a result, Tripoli is in one big mess pile right now.  But for the record, I’m more interested in what will happen to Gaddafi’s wife (wives?).  We hear a lot about these Muslim dictators, but very little about their significant others.
The capitalist that I am, I think the network Bravo could make a killing if it were to assemble these tyrants’ spouses and offer up the next big hit television reality show, “The Real Housewives of Deposed Muslim Dictators.”  Muammar Gaddafi is on his way out.  Hosni Mubarak in Egypt is already gone, and Bashar al-Assad in Syria may be next.
Think about it:  Just with these three men alone, there would be 200 Islamic babes stuffed into a room as they collectively reminisce over the good ol’ days when their husbands ruled with an iron fist, butchered political dissidents and organized Muslim Brotherhood telethons.
To pass the time throughout the day, the women could have contests on who could whip up the best humus.  They could compare burkini lines at the pool.  And they’d even play practical jokes on their men, like slipping them a roasted-pork sandwich for lunch.  Then Gaddafi and company could play tricks on their wives as payback, for example trading them in for a fully equipped camel as punishment for their vile insubordination.
It would be glorious, glorious television.
Write down your suggestions for this new Bravo series in the comments section below.
And if you don’t like the idea, at least I’m offering up a real program that will create jobs, unlike our Prez.
All in all, while I won’t miss Gaddafi, I will miss seeing that crazy North African fez on his head.  Each time he made a public appearance, the dude reminded me of Shock G from Digital Underground doing the “Humpty Dance.”  Here’s what I mean.
The Donald is making news again for saying the U.S. should seize the Libyan oil fields.  And he has a point.  We still don’t know who these rebel leaders are.  It’s not like they’re protesting in the vein of a Jeffersonian democracy like our forebears did.  There are tons of unsavory Islamist elements with al-Qaeda links within their midst.  Why would we want those Sharia nuts to get their hands on billions and billions of dollars worth of oil?  Until we know that they’re not the Taliban’s younger brother, we shouldn’t.  Not seizing the oil would be crazy. 
Speaking of crazy, did you see the clip of that Libyan TV anchor brandishing a gun on-air, vowing not to be taken by the rebels without a fight?  Was that really footage of a Gaddafi loyalist or rather was that Rachel Maddow on MSNBC the night Republicans took over the House of Representatives?  Me thinks it could be the latter.  You be the judge:

So Maxine Waters told the Tea Party to go straight to hell, and she even pledged to help them get there.  She apparently knows the best route.  Why do the media take her seriously?  As though we should care what Maxine Waters says.  We shouldn’t.  Let’s not forget that this is the same kook who accused the CIA of dumping crack cocaine into Los Angeles and even affirmed the LA riots, calling them “acceptable.”  She’s also currently being investigated for steering bailout funds to a bank that had close ties to her and her husband.
In any event, remember those fine days in the Bush administration when the Democrats screeched about “dissent being the highest form of patriotism?”  Apparently not any more.  Now liberals want you relegated to the Lake of Fire for suggesting that the government balance its books, cut spending and undue onerous regulations.
This must be all part of the “new tone” liberals were admonishing us about after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot.
