Let’s first acknowledge that Gaddafi is a ruthless dictator who has suppressed and slaughtered his own people for decades. Now, for insight into this megalomaniac’s buffoonery, check out the “fashionable” dictator in this unaired NBC news comedy pilot voiced by Today’s Nancy Foreman. Some highlights are the “hot new tunnel neck, zipped up the side” (very Rick Owens!), the green draped cape (we saw a lot of those for fall at New York Fashion Week), and the pink shrug. Kurt Anderson at NBC created the show, according to Mediaite, Deborah Norville and Stephen Frazier (now at CNN), were the achors, and Graydon Carter was a collaborator. What a shame the show never aired!
Let’s hope Gaddafi’s title is soon “deposed dictator.’
