one of the favorite phrases of indian journalists.
well, sonia has been done by in the too-clever-by-half tactics of her own partymen.
and now somnath the speaker and almost all of the marxists in parliament will have to follow suit too :-) in 'sacrificing'. they have been 'sacrificing' quite lavishly for some time at state expense in for-profit jobs.
and the marxists are also being done in by their own petard, the myth of party unity. in kerala, the ldf appears to be in disarray, desperately falling back on the ram vilas paswan tactic ("mohammedan for chief minister! other plans for the state? i don't have any other plans for the state").
i do hope the hindus especially the ezhavas of kerala just dump the marxists this time and vote massively for the bjp. of course it makes no sense to vote for the christist villains of the congress either.
yes, yes, the bjp is a bad party, only it's better than all the others on offer: mullah-party, padre-party, and maoputra-party.
