News outlets are reporting that Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who has run Libya for over 40 years, has now fled that country, most likely to the comforting arms of wannabe-dictator Hugo Chavez in Venezuela (think Pugsley's starting to get a little nervous these days?  Maybe Chavez's good pal Sean Penn can jet down there to reassure the pair of thugs that it's all going to work out OK).

In addition, key figures in Gaddafi's government have justifiably resigned to protest the brutal slaughter of their innocent countrymen who were simply peacefully demonstrating for their "leader" to get the heck out of office.

Freedom definitely appears to be catching lately in the Middle East.  Place your bets for the next country to throw off the yoke of oppression - will it be Bahrain, Yemen or Algeria?
