    Can you believe this?

    The Human Rights Council is poised to adopt a report chock-full of praise for Libya's human rights record.

    The review commends Libya for improving educational opportunities, for making human rights a "priority" and for bettering its "constitutional" framework. Several countries, including Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia but also Canada, give Libya positive marks for the legal protections afforded to its citizens -- who are now revolting against the regime and facing bloody reprisal.
  2. And who are the judges, who are the stalwarts of human rights?

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the UN human rights council members:

    * 15 from African States:
    Burkina Faso, Congo (Brazzaville), Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Kenya, Mauritania, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Togo, Zimbabwe
    * 12 from Asian States:
    Bhutan, People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka
    * 5 from Eastern European States:
    Armenia, Hungary, Romania, Russian Federation, Ukraine
    * 11 from Latin American and Caribbean States:
    Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru
    * 10 from Western European & Other States:
    Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States of America

    China, Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Russia, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia just to name a few. It takes a special kind of idiot to take this council seriously.
