Many people seemed disgusted with the girls comments, although I'm convinced we've all said things along those lines because unfortunately our superior attitude is ubiquitous.
Case in point:
Today, an acquaintance married into a candidate's family called to
1) 6abee3i ra7 ta36eena! (Ohwa minkum o'feekum)
"Wallah, I'm not sure yet; I've yet to hear him speak or hear anything about him. Bes inshallah..." she then explains how many ways we're related...(we're not.)
2) He's a young man, we need fresh blood.
"3ala 3aini o'rasi, bes our district is full of young people; so I"ll have to see."
3) Kafi inna wild _____, o'shayef 5air. Ya3ni shab3an moo min hel hailag illee dasheen 3ala 6ima3
"Hahahaaha", I thought she was joking then realized she's serious, "7abeebti...i got to go...but if you have information about events send me a message."
I hung up and almost hurled.
He can plaster the district from Doha to Qadsiya with his posters but with that kinda rhetoric
he's definitely not getting my vote!
Today's lesson: Rich people would never embezzle money or enter into shady deals to become richer. That's for haileg*.
