Sodomising pygmies- Obama's Afpak strategy

    Last year, soldiers off the 85th brigade of the Congolese Army ( that is the Democratic Republic of Congo's Army rather than any other sort of Congolese Republic's Army) were accused by Human Rights Organization of sodomizing pygmies to gain supernatural powers & ward off evil spirits.
   As usual, the Liberal Indglish Media, in its coverage of the atrocity, focused entirely on the culpability of Narendra Modi for what might turn out to be a major cause célèbre for 20/20 Cricket or some Bollywood shite or whatever the fuck it is Indglish speakers actually give a damn about.
   By contrast, the Neo-Con blogosphere-  or, at least, its bilious underbelly- has  incessantly sodomized the pygmy of the trope of Obama's Health Care Plan being a similar quest for super-powers.

    IMHO neither approach to the sodomizing pygmies portent is half as productive as the application of this trope to Obama's Afpak strategy. For, as in the story of Mahmud and Ayaz, which inspired much Sufi poetry, the question immediately arises- yes, Ayaz is a pygmy compared to the great Sultan, but who gains the supernatural power? Is it the bugger or the buggered or the poet who buggers up this pygmy theme?

   Is not all Literature but sodomizing pygmies? Is not the Truth of Art but the Super Power thereby gained?
As Emerson said- 'WTF dude? I never once mentioned sodomizing pygmies. You must be thinking of Thoreau. That boy aint right.'

There are so many glaring lacunae in this blog post that it is difficult to decide where to start.
Firstly, I would to draw your attention to the statement made by Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi, former Human Resources Minister, in the N.D.A Govt in which he categorically denied something or other meaning it must be true.
Secondly, I would just like to say Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi once again because it really trips of the tongue and is a sovereign remedy for constipation.
Thirdly, Murli Manohar Joshi.
Not everything can be blamed on the secularists in the Media, ordinary voters too should take some responsibility.

Sorry, I missed this comment when first posted and so failed to respond.
Utterly brilliant.
You, Sir, are a philosopher.
Unless, you're a lady- in which case, as a reward, I will permit you to attach naked pics of yourself to your next comment.
Jai Hind! and a very happy Murli Manohar Joshi to you too.
