Jay Leno on Qaddafi's Boorish U.N. Diatribe



IF YOU THINK commencement addresses can be long and sleep-inducing, you ain't seen nuthin yet.

I reckon it's part of being a narcissist; being so in love with one's own words (Castro was also fond of multi-hour speeches).

At one point during yesterday's awesomely crazy speech by Khadafy the voice of the translator changed. I joked they had to go to the bullpen but I honestly thought it was just a shift change or something.

Turns out, the guy lost it and had to be replaced.

After struggling to turn Khadafy’s insane ramblings at the UN into English for 75 minutes, the Libyan dictator’s personal interpreter got lost in translation.

"I just can’t take it any more", Khadafy’s interpreter shouted ito the live microphone – in Arabic.

At that point, the U.N.’s Arabic section chief, Rasha Ajalyaqeen, took over and translated the final 20 minutes of the speech
