Mishiko flunks opposition2011-02-15 14:08
Here is a new item of Saakashvili's clownery for his compatriots. Friday's report in parliament ended in debate with the opposition that gradually erupted into the president's monologue. The Georgian leader was uncontrollable in his fantasy revealing his new gift - to cop out of nasty questions. Flunking the opposition, Mikheil Nikolozovich made another demonstration of his demagogic talent. The result is brilliant: the country has no problems and Russia is to blame for all things anyway.
There is an old anecdote about a student taking a physics exam in front of the professor. "What's the name of the device that measures current intensity?" - the examiner asks. The student snatches his cheat-sheet but the professor takes the piece of paper away from him. "Mmm, it's a current meter!" - the student replies inventively. The examiner takes a look at his notes but the non-achiever tears the professor's notes away too. "Mmmm, sounds correct", - the professor gives up. Though in reality it is an ampere meter.
Saakashvili's debate with the opposition was similar. The Georgian leader looked more like a demagogic student babbling carelessly in front of perplexed professoriate about anything that crossed his mind. Mainly because the "professors", i.e. the opposition, did not take the trouble to refresh their knowledge on the subject. One excuse is that "the student" has always failed to answer opposition questions before. He basically caught them flatfooted consenting to take the "exam".
Georgi Akhvlediani, leader of the Christian Democratic faction came forward with accusations against the president: "You will become adequate when you stop looking in the distorting mirror you set up for yourself. Then you will see grave social and economic problems, trampled human rights, perturbed democracy, innocent young victims and millions of your compatriots on the brink of starvation".
Saakashvili's answer was full of enigmas:
"This is why we're different. The difference is in selecting a life path and rules of living. They are afraid of freedom like it's a powder box, and we have very little time because of it. The time is so short that we can't look in the mirror and marvel at the reflection".
