Resilient crazy person Muammar Qaddafi — despite claims from Libya's transitional forces and just about everyone else that he's cornered in the Sahara, or in hiding in Niger, or sipping cocktails with Robert Mugabe — released a new audio message today to Al-Rai TV and (predictably) it's delusional:

"We are ready to start the fight in Tripoli and everywhere else, and rise up against them," Gadhafi said. "All of these germs, rats and scumbags, they are not Libyans, ask anyone. They have cooperated with NATO."

"Gadhafi won't leave the land of his ancestors," he said, referring to himself in the third person. The authenticity of the recording could not be independently verified but the voice and rhetoric strongly resembled Gadhafi, who has used the TV channel in the past.

It's just a matter of time before someone collects four decades-worth of quotes for Shit Colonel Qaddafi Says.
