GeedarR, Sheher kaa rukh, etcetera.

I wonder why the newpaper of record numero deux, aka, The Wall Street Journal is offering up some depressing fare regarding our "beloved" president? Just as Zardari implemented his latest brain fart, and the Sharif brothers -- now recognizing fully the need for a public outcry against NRO-zadah Zardari (having been quiet for some time ... all this time actually) -- brought their supporters to the streeet, why did WSJ have to offer such bad press for Zardari?

Here is an excerpt... looks like herr prezidente is under considerable pressure! :

The widower of slain former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto is alienating both allies and foes. Even his personal style has turned off supporters of his wife -- some of whom serve in his government but are now reluctant to deal with him directly. At meetings in recent months, according to several witnesses, he lashed out at senior ministers, calling one a "witch" and another "impotent."

I wonder who the "witch" is .... Sherry Reghman?

I noticed long ago that Zardari was a bit of a lecher ... seems like he's a jack-ass to boot! ("to boot!" get it? hahahah)

Some of those who visit him there, however, say they are frequently subjected to boorish behavior.

At a meeting in mid-January, Mr. Zardari taunted Sen. Raza Rabbani, Pakistan's provincial coordination minister, calling him "impotent" after the two disagreed on how to approach allied political parties about running certain candidates in upcoming Senate elections. "You always say no, and that is a reason why you don't have children," the president told the 55-year-old senator, according to multiple witnesses.

In previous meetings, Mr. Zardari has called a senior cabinet minister a "witch" on many occasions. He has told others to "shut up" or mocked their personal foibles, divorces, affairs. "This is what you come to expect at the presidency. You go there and you are insulted," said another senator who was at the mid-January meeting. .

Officials say his behavior is putting off people to the point where they actively try to avoid working with him. That is keeping the government from getting things done, they say, citing everything from shaping economic policy to deciding the future of the tribal areas, which are ruled by the federal government.
