In March 2010, local people's committees "elected" a 2,700 member General People's Congress, which unanimously "elected" (for the 41st straight year) Muammar Gaddafi as Libya's head of state.
In March of this year, Gaddafi claimed that the Libyan people "loved him" and denied any opposition to his "popular" regime.
Sound familiar also?
Just five months later, Gaddafi's 42-year dictatorship -- the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya -- is over (and his son, Saif "the reformer," has been imprisoned).
And the Libyan people?
Celebrating in the streets of Tripoli.
We join them in their celebration.
