This summer Uma Bharti will Kill BILL (i e BJP ILL)

I have never been a fan of the BJP because it is an almost-entirely-but-not-quite-unlike Congress party.

I am not a great fan of the Congress. But given a choice between a bad product and a worse product trying to imitate an already bad product, I would choose the former.

This news - Uma Bharti ready to apologise is another chapter in this story. The BJP rebels are not rebels. They are almost-entirely-but-not-quite-unlike rebels. They just do not have the guts to rebel, and stick with it. First Kalyan Singh came whimpering back like a wet puppy. Now the supposedly "firebrand" Uma seems set to do the same.

The BJP still hasn't come to terms with the fact that it LOST the election. The only guy who seems to have accepted it with some degree of humility is Pramod Mahajan. But all the others are still trying to find excuses, and running around like headless roosters.
