Pakistani elections linkage and more.

Hi there, time for another collection of linkage! 🙂

Pakistan recently elected Asif Ali Zardari (widower of the late Benazir Bhutto) President of Pakistan. Here is a frustrated post from PoliticsPakistan.com, and here’s a lengthy article at Sikander Hayat’s World.

Christian Liberal has a great reminder to American Christians to be charitable and civil when debating about our election.

Crooks and Liars posted a commentary by Gloria Steinem reminding Hillary voters and everyone on the fence that Sarah Palin is nothing like Hillary.

Feministe has a post about some anti-Semetic and barf-bag worthy comments made by a Jews for Jesus leader who was speaking at Sarah Palin’s church.

MOMocrats compare Barack Obama and John McCain’s plans with regard to the Iraq War.

Racialicious has a good post about the show Exiled, which takes the spoiled, privileged brats from My Sweet Sixteen, and sends them to the Third World. Racialicious poster Latoya spoke to Newsweek about how this show dehumanizes the people living in the Third World.

Season of the Bitch has a post on why policing women’s femininity is a bad response to patriarchal abuse.

And Women’s Space has a powerful post with artwork and commentary on the prostitution of Iraqi girls and women in Syria and other refugee locations. Please note, if you are a survivor of sexual violence, this might *trigger* you.
