Best Performance in a Supporting Role
Can there be any doubt that we are one of the most supportive nations and our current condition owes a lot to this unique trait of ours. Here are the people who excelled in this area.
1. Mr. Asif Ali Zardari for supporting himself and absolutely nothing else. When one has so much power and the most important position in the country, it takes immense ‘courage’ to use all these resources for just one person, especially if that person is himself.
2. Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, for continuing to support the government for such a long time despite being repeatedly disappointed. He proved that the age-old saying ‘once bitten twice shy’ has no meaning for him and he can be bitten a thousand times and still feel no shyness whatsoever.
3. Altaf Hussain, for supporting whosoever he wishes with rallies, statements or howsoever he wishes without any real need for logic or common sense.
4. Dr. Babar Awan, for his unparalleled support for the President. The guy even called Asif Zardari, the spiritual son of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Now that’s what I call going all the way.
5. Siddiq al Farooq, for supporting everything the PML(N) leadership does and says. This support is all the more appreciable when you consider the fact that he does not seem to have a clue about most of the things he is supporting.
6. Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan Jatoi for that unbelievable statement he blurted in support of his party. Could anyone be more innocent and charming than Mr. Jatoi explaining that corruption was PPP’s right and anyone who was not corrupt must be stupid? We might never see a person clearer in his beliefs.
7. The Chaudhries of PML (Q) for supporting Gen. Musharraf in the face of serious opposition from PPP and now supporting PPP, thus proving that principles have little to do with politics.
8. The people of Pakistan for supporting incompetent people in every election and then whining till the next elections.
9. Imran Khan, for supporting all defeated politicians who can’t find a place in any other party.
10. Kamran, Umar and Adnan Akmal for always supporting each other and fighting for each other’s place in the team regardless of whether it is disastrous for the country. Now that’s what I can family ties. Blood is thicker than water (and cash thicker than blood? Can’t say that for sure).
