Magical 80s Sitcom Writers Long Ago Foretold Year of Gaddafi's Death

News


Not yet ready to stomach the gruesome, hardcore images of Muammar Gaddafi's capture and death flying around the Internet? Here for you then is a bland, insipid version of Gaddafi's demise brought to you by, who else, the 1980s! Eerily, this segment about Gaddafi reaching the office of St. Peter (where all bad Muslims go?) from this short-lived 1987 Matthew Perry sitcom Second Chance was mystically set in the world of 2011, which means, terrifyingly, that the 80s finally got exactly one thing right.

Meanwhile, the latest from the Guardian live blog indicates that NATO is still making up its mind about whether to quit bombing the shit out of Libya, which was so much fun while it lasted:

Nato commanders are recommending the Libya air campaign should now be brought to an end, my colleague Julian Borger tells me. The formal decision will be taken tomorrow by the North Atlantic Council, representing Nato member states. Julian just received this comment from a Nato official:

"A military assessment of the current situation in Libya and a recommendation for the wrapping up of the Nato operation is on its way to Nato HQ. This will most likely prompt a special meeting of the North Atlantic Council tomorrow to consider the recommendation and decide on the future of the current mission."

Ha ha "to consider the recommendation." IT'S OVER. NO MOAR BOMBZ NEEDED. [Buzzfeed/Guardian]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
