Is Gadaffi allergic / hyper sensitive to the sun ?

He nearly always wear sunglasses.
He appears outside holding large reflective umbrellas.
He always is virtually clothed from head to toe, with very little skin showing.
All in contrast to fellow Libyans outside.
He is nearly always seen in a large tent, or indoors.

I always thought he was trying to emulate Michael Jackson with the sunglasses, and to emulate Liz Taylor with his mumus...

Many journalists and diplomats who have had face-to-face interactions with him have come away from their encounters feeling like Gaddafi was on drugs. Photophobia could be part of that.

Gadaffi is a legend. That's why he's being attacked by other leaders at the moment - because they're pussies who're jealous of his rockishness.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

Oh yeah, that's it. It's a set up because everyone's just jealous of Gaddaffi the rock star. Totally.
