Liars & Damn Lies!
Tuesday, February 12, 2008
It beats anyone’s imagination to think of idiots sitting at computers in the West and writing absolute lies against their country in the name of journalism. Just imagine this. You are away from your country.
You have no idea what is going on here. But you are hellbent on maligning the reputation of other people, and your motherland, because some unimaginable cancerous worm, whose nature we cannot fathom, is squirming through your little brain and playing havoc with the tiny bit of intelligent thinking that you may possess.
Or is it the challenges of niggerhood in racist UK and US that is dismantling any vistages of rationality you may have possessed before you left peaceful and humane Gambia? We don’t know what is wrong with some of these deranged idiots.
But what we do know is this. Many of their stories, so-called reports and imagined interviews are simply false. As for The Gambia, it is a peaceful country, and inspite of what this idiots wish, we know that with the blessing of Allah, it will continue to be so. Inshallah.
Clinton & Obama, we thought. But should it be Obama & Clinton?
Last week wepenned an editorial titled the Dream-Ticket, in which we imagined Hillary Clinton as the Democrats Presidential candidate with Obama as her running mate.
Well, in a few heady days, Obama is proving to us and most of the world that we may be wrong. Maybe it should be Obama for President and Hillary for Vice-President. This indeed looks like it may be the option. But spare a thought former President Bill Clinton - sent out to grass on his desolate farm somewhere in Arkansas, while President Obama and his VP get cooped up in the Oval Office, smoking cigars and doing God knows what!
