In The
Of Islamic

Who said this:

The "easiest way" for Pakistani women to make money is to get raped, he said, so they're lining up to be raped and thus making him look bad… "You must understand the environment in Pakistan… This has become a moneymaking concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped…It is the easiest way of doing it. Every second person now wants to."

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.

What is so astoundingly stupid about this statement is that Musharraf is admitting that his government and, indeed, the culture of Pakistan itself, is so dysfunctional that people can't think of a better way to make money. Musharraf is coming right out and telling us he is a complete failure as a President. With this statement he beat Jimmy Carter's "Malaise" speech hands-down.
