The fly on the axle of a bullock cart wheel

Left is in a self-congratulatory mood. CBCNN, as its mouthpiece, does an incredible job of Leftist propaganda. Reminds me of a story. A fly sitting on the wheel of a bullock cart thinks it is the one powering the vehicle.

The Hindu : Front Page : Pratibha Patil is UPA-Left Presidential candidate

For 48 hours, it was eyeball to eyeball between the Congress and the Left parties, and Sonia Gandhi blinked first. Faced with the Left opposition to Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil's candidature, the Congress proposed Rajasthan Governor Pratibha Devisingh Patil as the United Progressive Alliance's nominee for President.

The turnaround came when Dr. Singh and Ms. Gandhi invited the Left leaders for consultations.

Mr. Raja suggested that they look for a woman candidate, an idea that was instantly picked up by ...

I find it funny that the Congress managers have to emphasise the importance of Non-PM.

Congress managers emphasised that Dr. Singh played a major role in choosing a name that was agreeable to the Left parties.
