Zardari flirts with Sarah Palin: Calling her Gorgeous & Offers to Hug

As suspected from my earlier post where I shuddered at the thought of what Asif Ali Zardari might serve up to Washington during his trip to attend the UN General Assembly, well the games have begun. In a recent meeting with the Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, our Honorable President was seemingly a little bit too un-Presidential [?]. During the customary greetings between the two leaders, Zardari called Palin “gorgeous” and later even offered “to hug” the Alaskan Governor. I do not mean to suggest that this is in anyway a crime, but being the President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan there are some protocols that should be adhered to in an effort to uplift the respect and dignity of Pakistan and to the office with which he has been assigned to.

It seems to have been the perfectly scripted conversation as temporal had predicted well before the actual Sarah Palin and Asif Zardari meetup. There maybe some fanatics in Pakistan who may even cringe at seeing him shaking hands with a women, but whatever the objection and whether we like it or not it has become a routine in western interactions and I might even suggest that such flirtatious comments might even be the norm but I dare to say, at least not on camera. It is quite possible that Sarah Palin considered these as a complement, but if you were to observe the video footage of the exchange she does feel a little uneasy.

CNN has this to say

Pakistan’s recently-elected president, Asif Ali Zardari, entered the room seconds later. Palin rose to shake his hand, saying she was “honored” to meet him. Zardari then called her “gorgeous” and said: “Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you.”

“You are so nice,” Palin said, smiling. “Thank you.” A handler from Zardari’s entourage then told the two politicians to keep shaking hands for the cameras. “If he’s insisting, I might hug,” Zardari said. Palin smiled politely.

A little OFF-TOPIC: Wrapping up the meeting when a reporter asked Sarah Palin a question about her day she responded

“It’s going great,” Palin said. “These meetings are very informative and helpful, and a lot of good people sharing appreciation for America.”

DUH !!! I believe we just had ourselves the first Sarah Palin Blonde Moment. America !! are you sure you want to have her as Vice President of the United States

    It is a small matter. Why that much it is being discussed. Sky will not fall if Zardari has said that Palin is gorgeous. Moreover in US such things are routine.

    Thank God she lives in the US. Had she been a citizen of Pakistan his goons would have brought her to the President house at night. Mr. Palin would never have been seen or heard from and Mr. Z would be rolling the prayer beads ever so piously the next morning…SICK

    this bastard zardari has already distroyed the name of Islamic Republic of Pakistan and now he will soon Inshallah distroy the whole nation. Its not at all his fault, coming out from jails after 8 yrs (fortunate to become president of Pakistan). You can expect anything from him.

    Zardari: we are (pakistan) in a state of WAR. Because we are holding our pants up before a HUG. Rediculous some war

    I havent seen so many cheap comments on one blog even by Pakistani standards. I suppose they expect Zardari to stick to protocols set by Yayha Khan and Musharaf and stick to local starlets.

    zardari killed BB jan. and now he can do any thing.sara pallin is a corrupt lady. but zardari bhi kam nahi.
    is country ki bad naseebi k zardari president ban gya

  • Jawan |

    Rulers are reflection of the fact if Allah SWT is Happy with the Muslims or not. First Mush the American puppy and now a cheapster like Zardari.
    What else to expect from a man who has billions of dollers worth saved through NRO, and made President of Pak courtesy USa and its puppy Mush.
    Heard these days Mush the puppy is in Karachi and being hosted by none other than his saviours and lovers MQM. However like every time, MQM had to join the govt of Mush’s enemies. But how can a thief remain in enemity with thanedar? So MQM’s position is well known for ever.
    Zardari you seem to love western /US culture. Someday someone will be having the same remarks about your daughters too. Just wait and see what Allah Has in store for oyu and your likes.

    the son of a bitch has really disgraced the whole nation. it infact is the result of our bad deeds as a nation that God has put him as our head of the state
    may God help us all to survive this hard time and put a sincere and honest leader in Pakistan

  • Salman Pindi Wala |

    Ms. Palin, too, is no different than King Z!!! (Khoob Guzray Gee Jab Mil Baithain Gay Deewanay Do)

    Read this……an article from an american national…..

    If you had the chance to see any of Sarah Palin’s two (yes ONLY two, her interview with Sean Hannity doesn’t count) interviews with the media since Senator John McCain chose her as his VP candidate, it is obvious that she is a total idiot. She has failed to directly answer most policy questions thrown at her, especially regarding the key issues at stake in this election: foreign policy & the economy. She responds to such questions with with vague generalizations and the same old talking points shes obviously been coached to regurgitate.

    It is nothing but an utter mockery of the state of our country that such an inexperienced – and more importantly – ignorant person is being has been chosen as the potential leader of the most powerful nation in the world.

    And I want to stress that this has nothing to do with her gender, or religion, or anything about her personally. Granted I have my issues with the religious right in the republican party, but we should not be questioning or ridiculing her religious beliefs. Many things we believe as Muslims can also be viewed as ridiculous by non-Muslims, so we should be careful of threading down that path…

    She lies about being against the “bridge to nowhere” when she voted for it – and then once it was made public at how outrageous it was became publicly against it [but kept the funds]
    She claims that being neighbors with Russia and Canada gives her foreign policy experience
    She doesn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is
    She claims McCain is the best man to handle the current economic crisis because of his “foresight… pragmatism, and leadership abilities, but when asked to name a SINGLE example of such, responded with “I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you [Katie Couric]).
    She views the foreign affairs as a simplistic fight between good v. evil
    – and this was just from TWO interviews!

    Matt Damon said it best when he expressed his fear of the fact that there is a chance that this lady may be our president:

  • Zeeshan |

    Hadees hai ke jaisi kaum hoti hai waisa hi hukmaraan hota hai. Pakistanis deserve a leader like Zardari, not like Mustafa Kamal Ataturk. First of all we’ve to change ourselves. Then we can expect a good leader. As said in Khud ke liye : Ander aag lagao, bahir hud aaye gi.

  • GULL |

    hello all
    zardari is soo much stupid.he show his supidness in

    ALLAH MIAN es mulk ko bacahein

  • Abid Shakeel |

    I dont find anything special in that conversation. This was a conversation in light mood. That should not have been exploited by the media. But that has exposed the level of tolerance and understanding in the Pakistani society. The Pakistani media made that a big issue and Fatwas were issued against Zardari.
    The reaction from Pakistan indicates the path of extremism on which the country is making a fast progress.

  • Straw Man |

    @Abid
    Does it make you uncomfortable to be associated with Pakistan and sitting in NY? :-)
    You see, ‘Tolerance’ is for others. We (as a nation and not as individuals, many of our enlightened individuals are too liberal even by american standards) can ‘tolerate’ the American beauty pageant and bikini modeling culture, hell, we might even enjoy it, the way we enjoy those indian movies. We let the christians in Pakistan practice their culture by making booze for them at Murree Breweries and QDL, and give them bars to drink at. That is tolerance and acceptance, no? Some of us even share their culture with them :-)
    When it comes to our president though, seriously, we believe that his public life is no more his, as he represents millions of people’s cultural, moral and religious beliefs (we do call this place ‘Islamic Republic’, right?) and he should respect them. That is why we are impressed when his Iranian counterpart doesn’t shake hands with women. That is not extremism, that is just where WE draw the line before getting offended. Some draw it a bit further and let their president get favors by interns and lie to the whole nation, others draw it when their president shakes a female hand. We have always been like this, and this is why we are Pakistan and not still a British colony. Call it extremism or call it culture, whatever you call it. We, as a nation, don’t want to tolerate our president’s behavior, we just don’t want to ALLOW him to behave that way. He is there after getting elected by us, and he is using our money to go abroad and represent us. If he uses our money to flirt with ‘gorgeous’ women and skip iftars to party with Geishas, you can bet your ____ we won’t call it ‘progress’ and tolerate it, because it is not, by any standards, even if 2% of the Pakistanis do endorse such behavior.

  • Abid Shakeel |

    Strawman, I respect your opinion, but still have a right to differ. When you say that you have allowed Christians to use liquor/ spirits, that made me to laugh. I recall a debate in Punjab Assembly some four years ago, when there was an issue of imposing ban on liquor. Then a Chrisitan MPA objected that we are being defamed on this issue. Then Minsiter for Revenue gave an interesting comment ” Boota Masih buys liquor and Muhammad Boota, uses that”. He said that Christians are so poor in this country and they cannot afford that high priced product. So dont tell that a ” level of tolerance”.
    This is always a great embarssment for all Pakistanis living in western countries. When in the name of culture we kill girls and some time bury them alive. We need to recognize our problems first, so then we would be able to solve them. We are not living in the stone age.

  • Lady M.B.B.S. |

    “”This is always a great embarssment for all Pakistanis living in western countries.””

    Respectable Aabid Shakeel Sahab,I very much agree with whatever you have said,but have Westren countries particularly Americans ever felt embarrasment in ‘whatever they do'(no one is ignorant of that)???
    Here girls get killed,sometimes burried alive and SOMETIMES SOLD TO CIVILIZED AMERICANS.
    How do they treat their own females every one knows that,but they enjoy it.
    Whatever Mr.Zardari did was wrong this way or that way,be that in a light hearted mood.
    No doubt he was Representing US,and we are Muslims.

    It just reflects the THARKI PANA of Sindhi Vadeora.
    He didn’t realize that the conversation would be recorded and the people will make out issue of it.
    We have to accept; this Man has “Guts” … would it have Nawaz ‘he wouldn’t have said anythig – rather than ‘Hi Hello, please to meet you’.

    Zardari nay US Madam ki ORALLY lay lee ..

  • Nadcracker |

    @Abid,

    Respected Sir, I agree with the point you made about Pakistanis abroad being embarrassed when media exploits such small things. But the sad reality is, that the American media had started making fun of this incident even before Pakistani media could start a fire. A popular American TV show SNL showed Sarah Palin (Tina fey) slapping Pakistanis on their butts with a large trout.

    Katie Couric (Amy Poehler): How did the world leaders you met, react to you?

    Sarah Palin (Tina Fey): Oh! they embraced me both figuratively …. and a couple of ‘them’ Pakistani guys ‘literally’.

    And so actions like these (like Zardari’s not being able to keep the snake in his pants) make Pakistan a laughing stock on American Media and in the eyes of other countries embarrass us (Pakistanis living in Pakistan) and thus my friend, we’re both being embarrassed while the monkey is still on the loose doing his acrobats.

    Pakistan se ZINDA bhag!

  • Rafay Kashmiri |

    @ carefull with ” disguised muslim-bashing” by
    pretencious Kazibis, with their impurities,
    Zardari made verbal compliments, what about
    the Kazibi Khalifa visiting and watching striptease
    in Moulin Rouge or Crazy horse to “learn ” Hijab and
    women’s ” Status ? Paris reports.

  • AILIA |

    If Presint zardari said sarah palin gorgeous, it is not a big issue. shoukat aziz also did this thing to condo liza rise. it is not a big matter. phycology researchs has proved that girls like very much when someone talks about there beauty. it was a routine meeting. but our media display it wrongly. although i am not in favour of zardari. but wrong thing is wrong and right thing is right. SHERRY REHMAN IS STILL A GOOD CHOICE 4 HIM. BY THE WAY

    • Ahmad |

      hahahahaah!!!!!! You better be joking girl cuz as the blogger rightfully said that being a president entitles you to some protocols which you must uphold .Being a president of an islamic republic makes you even more accountable and being a president plus a muslim plus a widower…………..hope u get the point

  • Zalim Qazi |

    You've got to be kidding. Right? The PM and Zardari have serious differences as it is.
