Spineless Politician Masala

Raj Thackeray is at it again:

There is a new culinary dish being churned out in the political arena and it is called ‘spineless politician’ like the boneless chicken.

For once I agree with Thackeray—but not in the sense that he intends. I think there are too many spineless politicians in Mumbai, including in government, who don’t stand up for Mumbai’s people and condemn Thackeray’s demagoguery. They are driven by political considerations, not principles—but that is what makes them successful politicians, so I guess one shouldn’t hold that against them.

And there’s nothing wrong with boneless chicken. Unless it’s alive.
