    I think it’s an absolute disgrace, it makes Indonesian the laughing stock of the world, putting up stupid childish posters like these.

    That’s not Gandalf, it’s old Assmad S in drag!

    Am I the only one who thinks H. Kalim may be distantly related to Vladimir Putin?

  24. trane says:

    “Thanks for the offer Trane, but I think the Partai Sekular is a non-starter. :)”

    Right, but how’s Partai Pluralisme Populer for starters? (PPP, oh shoot!)
    Partai Amanat Harapan? (PARAH!, dammit!)
    Partai Keadilan Pelawak? (hm..)

    This needs some work before the next election.

  25. David says:

    New controversial candidate in the race!!!

  26. Achmad Sudarsono says:

    Awesome… I am inspired…

  28. joao says:

    WOW! I dared not think of AAB in spandex, until now. πŸ˜€
