Ronald Reagan gave it his best shot back in the 80′s but was unsuccessful. However, it looks like Gaddafi’s luck has finally run out:

(Reuters) – Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi died of wounds suffered on Thursday as fighters battling to complete an eight-month-old uprising against his rule overran his hometown Sirte, Libya’s interim rulers said.

His killing, which came swiftly after his capture near Sirte, is the most dramatic single development in the Arab Spring revolts that have unseated rulers in Egypt and Tunisia and threatened the grip on power of the leaders of Syria and Yemen.

“He (Gaddafi) was also hit in his head,” National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”

Gaddafi went out bravely fighting his enemies head-on, more than happy to martyr himself. Just kidding — like Saddam Hussein before him, he was found hiding in a hole and ended up begging for his life:

An anti-Gaddafi fighter said Gaddafi had been found hiding in a hole in the ground and had said “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot” to the men who grabbed him.

Not long ago, Gaddafi promised to fight and “die like a martyr.” Either that or yell “don’t shoot” and soil himself.

There’s a photo at The Atlantic that is supposedly Gaddafi. Another photo here.

I know what you’re all wondering: “What’s going to happen to Gaddafi’s hot bodyguards?” Sources have tipped me, but for now all I’m going to say is that fairly soon you might see some new faces among Bill Clinton’s security detail.

    Wow, Dick Obummer is on a roll with taking out dictators and terrorists. He certainly has flip flopped on the US being involved in armed conflicts around the world. Wonder how the occupiers will take this???

    They went the way of chrome bumpers. Look nice but not very practical.

    This is a cautionary tale for wannabe dictators. When you can't even get people to agree on how to spell your name, it never ends well.

    Maybe he'll use the capping of Gaddafi to justify his application for another Peace Prize.

    He was a typical bully, but I'll bet that as a child he never made it to school with his lunch money. One down. Big deal. In the scope of world bullies, the colonel's demise is like taking a rock away from a mountain.

    No doubt, Quaddaphee`s bootyguards have seen the last of the good life !

    Oh Phil… stop being such a wet blanket. What's more fun to polish!

    ( Besides, I think the 3rd one down was giving me 'the eye'? )
