The Qaddafis and the Bluths

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 08, 2011

The New Republic compared the Qaddafi family with Arrested Developments Bluth family and found some similarities.

Mohammed Qaddafi and Gob Bluth are both the oldest sons of tyrannical fathers, and both stand in the shadows of their younger, more favored brothers. The sibling rivalry can get intense — Mohammed’s feud with younger brother Mutassim over a Coca-Cola plant ended only after a worker had been injured and a cousin had been stuffed into a car trunk, while Michael and Gob’s dueling banana stands ended with the fire department being called twice.
