Musharraf as “that bad uncle”

And when he said, “Extremists have gone very extreme,” it suddenly occurred to me why his speech pattern seemed so familiar. He was that uncle that you get stranded with at a family gathering when everybody else has gone to sleep but there is still some whisky left in the bottle. And uncle thinks he is about to say something very profound – if you would only pour him one last one.

That is Mohammed Hanif here; link via Amardeep.

What can I say, except that Musharraf is truly multi-faceted (though I have a sneaky suspicion that that precisely might be his idea–to give the impression of, if a bit eccentric, harmless uncle who has your welfare in mind).
