The West Wing’s Leo McGarry on the Correct Way to Spell ‘Qaddafi’

In the pilot episode of NBC’s West Wing, White House Chief of Staff Leo McGarry calls the editor of the New York Times crossword puzzle to correct the spelling of Qaddafi’s name. Unfortunately, the Times hangs up on him before McGarry reveals his correct version, 

17-across is wrong … You’re spelling his name wrong … What’s my name? My name doesn’t matter. I’m just an ordinary citizen who relies on the Times crossword for stimulation. And I’m telling you that I’ve met the man twice, and I’ve recommended a preemptive Exocet missle strike against his airforce so I think I know how … They hang up on me every time.
