India's Former PM In The Closet With Sai Baba
File under: Gurubusting and Hands Where They Don't Belong
He may be a decrepit mess, but the kid-diddling Sai Baba still has pull with the pols in India:
Vajpayee, who is on a two-day visit to Karnataka for campaigning, was closeted with Sai Baba for nearly an hour in the company of his foster daughter Namita Bhattacharya, son-in-law Ranjan Bhattacharya and granddaughter Niharika.Even we don't wanna go there with that one.
Bottom line: sucking up to Sai Baba and other big-time gurus equals votes for Indian politicos. Since elections have been called for February, we can expect more of this sort of thing:
This is the second time Vajpayee has met Saibaba after the general election was announced [for] February 29. The first meeting last month was at the spiritual leader's ashram at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh.But Mr. Vajpayee, sir, please don't trade your kids for votes next time.
