(AFP)   Bhutto's teenaged son to succeed her as party leader; fortunately we would never be so silly in the U.S. as to select an inexperienced person to fill an important government position just because he is the former leader's son   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 389

Nice try Subtard, but Bhutto never officially held an
important government position, much less was ever ELECTED to lead a
country.

However, the fact that you (and oh so many others) still agonize
over the election AND subsequent re-election of a former leader's
son makes me feel good... very good indeed.

Bhutto was twice elected Prime Minister of Pakistan.

You can be a noob, but try not to be dumb.

Most of Fark, including me. But in this case I think he has other 'special needs' that contribute to his problems.

I hope you meant that as a joke...

On December 2, 1988 Benazir Bhutto was sworn in as Prime Minister of Pakistan, becoming the first woman to head the government of an Islamic State.

Pwned?
 
2007-12-30 07:47:22 PM  
And We'd never be so stupid as to elect someone just because they liked her hubby as prez too right subby?

I'm curious to know how you became so misinformed.

Irony tag must've been off its game today because of Subby's headline
 
2007-12-30 07:48:11 PM  
Way to bring it home, Subby.

How does the chaos, death of democracy and suffering in that little developing country apply to me? Hey, when is that writers strike going to finally end?

Well to be fair, the people didn't elect this president either.

Haw haw! A Bush joke headline! Jeez, talk about grabbing at the low-hanging fruit. I'm pretty sure everything negative that could ever be said about a person, has been said about that guy. Maybe term limits should be shorter so we can circulate some new material more often.
 
2007-12-30 07:51:28 PM  
in all fairness, Benazir Bhutto herself was the daughter of a prominent politician; his connections helped her to be twice appointed Prime Minister. Pakistan still has a ways to go [towards reaching economic and political stability]. Nothing new...

Not meaning to threadjack, but what does "this" mean when used in reference to a previous comment? It's really hard to google for a definition :)

Black Osama is correct. However, inexperience still means inexperience.

Can't wait for Justin Trudeau to be PM. I might vote liberal again for him.

Go back and drink some more Koolaid, bushies.....

That means they agree with the comment. It also means they don't really have anything to contribute but like seeing their screen name show up.

cool, so the kid gets to be on the pussy gravy train for a few years until he gets gunned down or hanged by some towelhead just like his mom and grandfather. methinks it is NOT a good deal for him.

"THIS" is a statement of support, meaning that the current poster agrees strongly with whatever it is that he/she has just quoted. For example:

someguy: Bacon is good.

THIS.

Short for "I came in here to say this. THIS."

Universally not clever.

It's a Fark way of showing agreement with someone's comment and is despised by many.

/not me, though.

Aside from the easy Hillary sniping, you guys do realize that W was elected Governor of Texas twice, right? That counts as executive experience in government in my book.

Please tell us you don't vote.

Never mind - even if someone helped you register, you'd never be able to fill out the ballot.

I share the sentiments about feeling very good indeed. I feel secure in my home, feel secure in my financial position, and I have not had my Constitution Rights torn from my under the guise of protecting me.

Then again I am employed and self sufficient so it may differ for the bottom feeders.

Nor any of the previous ones if you use that logic. The electoral college elected the presidents.

How does it feel to be thoroughly owned by other Farkers?

Tell me, does ignorance really make one happier? Cause you seem pretty ignorant to me.
