I support Obama

Posted in politics by jrahman on August 28, 2008

He better win, not least because I’m heavily geared.  If Obama loses, I need to:

  • buy a colleage a coke zero;
  • buy another colleague a book of his choice worth $100;
  • shout another one lunch;
  • give a friend $50;
  • buy a brother a book of his choice;
  • write a facebook message praising Gens Musharraf and Moeen while wearing a Pakistani flag (if Obama wins, the brother with whom this bet is will drape himself with the Indian flag and shout democracy zindabad while doing a bhangra).

    I second Fariha! We need graphic proof! In addition, I want portraits of said men hanging behind you. Bonus points for portrait of a self-proclaimed friend (not master).

    May be defeat of Obama will not be that painful now, thanks to all the Jyoti-rmoy entertainment. ( After Bush re-election I stopped watching news channels for one year).
