If Obama was born in Sri Lanka?

This is hilarious, got this email from a chain letter, and see how funny it is. Yep. This is the reality of our government or better to say who ever governs the government get the power. See the Rajapaksha Regime, Younger brother Gotabhaya Rajapaksha Secretary of Defense, Elder brother Basil Rajapaksha MP and a Senior advisor for the president, and the power behind the throne, middle brother Mahinda Rajapaksha President/Defense and Finance Minister, Another brother Chamal Rajapasksha MP and Minister of Port and Aviation, brother in law chairman of the Sri Lankan Airline. This is only some of popular guys, but how many are there hidden?

Rajapaksha's have't really done that is new or inherently unethical. Large families in politics always done similarly - look at how the Kennedy clan ran the White House.

Nice joke, but hardly fair.

Love'em or hate them, Rajapakse clan has been the most successful figures to emerge in SL politics for while. They have exceeded expectations by all accounts, and have weathered every attack from the Colombo elites.

Probably better than the record of Kennedy's, or Bush's from US.

Rajapakse's would have been even more deadly if they had PR handlers like the big wigs in US.

Don't they say in Texas, don't let facts get in the way of a good joke.

Typical Sri Lankan style: **don't stop shooting yourself in the foot**.
