Getting there, slowly but surely.

It's not because you can use your name in an ad it means the ad will be a success.... On the flip side, Ossama Saad - whose father's name (Who was also an MP) was called Maarouf (Or "popular/known" hits big with his signature "Khattak maarouf" which doubles as "You potitics are known" but also "Following the line of your father". On the flop side, Mehieddine Majbour - whose surname means "Has to put put up with" or "Forced to" - who signs "Majbour bel ness" (Has to put up with the people)....
Just for the fun of it, and because now I have a better view of it, please note the "Zay ma hiyye" of the Future Movement in its full glory... Now, going back the "right" and "wrong" dyptics launched by the Free Patriotic Movement, the Lebanese forces says "Creating alliances with the killers of Bachir (Gemayel, founder of the Lebanese Forces) is wrong" - However, currently they are allied with the man who threw a national celebration for Habib Chartouni the killer of the Gemayel when the Syrian forces stormed and rescued him from the Roumieh prison on October 13, 1990 calling him a national hero, that man is Walid Joumblatt. Then they continue "There are no Lebanese prisoners in the Syrian prisons - wrong", and then - true to all football lovers, the score will be 5-0 respectively for the Lebanese forces and their allies and for "Syrian allies."
Two other ads are worth mentionning at this stage - the first comes courtesy of Khayyat Saghir a publishing house whose heroine "Sisi Malaket" (Sisi Clothespin) is the candidate for the seat of the libraries who sports the line "Kabber a'aklat bel moutala'a" (Grow up - both litteraly and figuratively - through reading), and the other is for the Danish furniture designer Bo Concept whose latest campaign "Don't blame us" saw itself add a new one "If you cannot find a seat in the parliament, don't blame us."When it comes to blaming and pointing fingers, a lot of it will be done once the elections are over....
