If they could talk back...

Media is chock full of soundbite remarks by politicians and 'secular' types talking down to "unwashed masses." Sometimes it is aimed at their opponents, overall it's about silly posturing, meaningless platitudes, or something to get the spotlight and show themselves as cute idiots. But what if their subjects could talk back? Some of the comebacks we can imagine:

I would have crushed Lalu under a dump truck: Varun

CPM's image of W. Bengal is an illusion, says Pranab

I invite Mallika for an open dance session: yours truly (No, we're not confusing her with mademoiselle Sherawat)

We understand jihad: Court

This list can be endless. Readers' suggestions are welcome.
