May 3, 2013

Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.

Watching Musharraf's travails after his return to Pakistan reminds me of a Tom and Jerry cartoon: the one where Tom sneaks furtively into a yard, only to be ambushed by the bulldog, his tail firmly in the grip of said bulldog's jaws, with periodic 'boing, boing' noises emanating whenever Tom's head makes contact with the hard ground. Not that I have any sympathy for the f*cker. Musharraf, that is; Tom I dearly love.

Speaking of bulldogs, Surendra's recent cartoon about the CBI and the Supreme Court is a classic.
