Political ironies…

I am still trying to process all that has been happening in Jos… Arizona… and elsewhere, and I will do a Jos-related post soon, but in the meantime….

It does not seem to have hurt him tonight….

And for a little political hyperbole. Here are some more posters for Jonathan as I saw them sometime last year in Abuja.  I suppose the Messaih is a good stand in for the Messiah….

And in other well-thought political placement….

The Quranic verse translated into Hausa in front of this political poster says, “He who does not pity others, will not receive pity.”
