Politics and Acting

16 Oct

Its now a known fact that Actors make lousy politicians. However the reverse is not true. Politicians make great actors. They dont even need a script. Theres an “Act” everyday. Here are some examples:

Hand over resignation letters that they know will not be accepted.

2. Hand over Post-Dated resignation letters. Now thats a new one…

To Quote CNN/IBN

Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) Rajya Sabha member of Parliament Kanimozhi has given a post dated resignation letter to support MK Karunanidhi’s decision to withdraw support from United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government if it fails to stop military aid to Sri Lanka.


3. Proclaim allegiance to one leader today and to another one tomorrow with the same level of fervor.

Oh one more thing. Have you heard of a “relay” hunger strike? Here one politician fasts from breakfast to lunch, another one from lunch to tea and another from tea until early dinner…. This is a masterpiece.

    Wish they could do the relay smoking ban – divide the 24 hours in a day into the 25-odd states and have the ban in each state for some time… 😀
    Relay hunger strike – Ridiculous! 😀

    Vijay we might as well as give it up. Relay fasting, really brilliant. Politicians have now proven to us, unwashed masses that they really are brilliant and deserve to lead us, the poor sheeple [;)]

    politicians are most creative people what novel ideas they get and they justify all wrong things done with full vigour and no shame or anything. just they are like that. MK or Maya or uma or anyone they will have their won say and that will get reflected in their report super comment and super post nicely penned congrats
