We here at qifanabki.com are completely befuddled over the question of what all of these brilliant political ad designers are going to do when the electoral campaign is over.
What do you see as the subtext here? No, no, no, I refuse to believe that there is no subtext… we may be a superficial people with surgically-altered noses and silicone-enhanced lips, but we’ve also got plenty of cheek, which is where the Aounists’ tongues are firmly implanted, as far as this ad is concerned.
What’s the target? The beautiful people, the so-called valentinos of March 14th? The candidacy of Nayla Tueni? Or is it all just fun and games?
Speaking of fun and games, is anyone having more fun these days than General Michel Aoun? He was positively jovial in a recent press conference he gave, where he heralded the demise of the March 14th alliance. On the subject of Jumblatt’s notorious camera-phone moment (in which he took a big old dump on his own Christian allies), the General had this to say:
“We watch comfortably as March 14 ranks grow weaker,” Aoun said following the weekly meeting of his Change and Reform bloc.
“The only common factor that brought together the March 14 forces is external. This factor is starting to break up leaving them without a national strategy to follow,” he said.
“In the meantime, they are still stuck in power struggle,” Aoun added.
Aoun said “he expected noting better” from Jumblat, who described the Maronites as being “useless.”
“It is only natural that he says that,” Aoun said, adding he was not waiting for an apology from the Druze MP.
“Jumblat’s allies are the ones who should ask for an apology, not me,” he added.
