What do Muammar Gaddafi and Teresa Scanlan, winner of Miss America 2011 have in common?

Question: what links Muammar Gaddafi and Teresa Scanlan, winner of Miss America 2011? The answer is they both made strong statements over the weekend against WikiLeaks.

Gaddafi blamed the Tunisia uprising on cables written by "ambassadors in order to create chaos". In answer to a question on WikiLeaks at the pageant, Scanlan, who (more conventionally) also played the piano and wore a bikini, said the release of the cables "was actually based on espionage, and when it comes to the security of our nation, we have to focus on security first and then people's right to know."

2. Ahh, well, if the new 17 year-old
Miss America thinks that Wikileaks is bad then maybe I need to change my opinion on the issue. Miss Scanlan needs to meet with the President and his Cabinet so they can properly decide how to deal with this situation.

5. What an odd non-sequitur.
Not that I care what Gaddafi and the beauty queen have to say in the first place, though.
