Just read one joke on facebook:
Actors are playing cricket -> Salman Khan playing CCL.
Cricketer playing politician -> Sachin in Rajya Sabha.
Politician playing porn star -> Singhvi and CD.
Porn stars are playing actor -> Sunny Leone playing in Jism-2.
That my friend is a full circle.
TO ALL THOSE CONGRESS SUPPORTERS, who think nominating Sachin Tendulkar to RS will make them win LS Polls of 2014, here is a crude reality check:
Some years back, TVS Motors, a south india based 2 wheeler company was floundering in sales of its primary motorcycle brand, Victor. And they hit upon idea of making brand ambassador out of ST and making adverts showing ST riding the motorcycle. And the idea was implemented. And months went. The sales never went up and only went down.
And it was then the company realised the hard truth - Good Batsmen does not transalate into good sales. The company then went the hard path - doing R&D and bringing better product lines.
And the ultimate joke in whole episode is, ST, who was in the advert for the motorcycle (TVS Victor) never personally rode any two wheeler !
So to all those secular,socialist, Sonia Gandhi worshipping Congress fans, here is the message - your goverance record is what matters for winning 2014 elections. And as of today, you are toast - even if you get entire bollywood and entire Indian cricket team to canvass for you. So wake up to the reality
" Appeal to everyone who LOVES and BELIEVES in Sachin-- please sign online petition supporting Sachin for next President."
Sorry, we don'r want psychophants like you -- or for that matter, Sachin himself. The country is choking with them.
Poor Sachin, no other options to save his earnings. After all the kangis desperate to promote Raul Baba, by now every one knows what BABA is capable of and he needs so many healthy shoulders... HA HA HA ..........
There is a funny sense of deja vu after reading this. There was a similar response when Soniya Gandhi had abdicated PM post in favor of Man Mohan Singh. Some of the political parties were clamoring for awarding Bharat Ratna to Sachin so that in future he could be lured to join them. Now UPA has checkmated them by getting elected to RS they are crying foul. Don't be a sore loser.
Naye Rajya Sabha ki nayee umang :-
Rajya Ghar ho to aisa_ ek biwi, ek woh aur ek bachha :-)
well dravid has committed cardinal sin of speaking at a RSS meet so he is out of contention for our catholic mulla alliance government
Appeal to everyone who loves and believes in Sachin - please sign this online petition for supporting Sachin as next President of India.
What can we say about Indian voters if they vote for the Congress party just because the Congress party was successful in snatching Sachin to Rajya Sabha?
At least, now Sachin is qualified to be nation's PM, MMS has opened that door for him.
I used to know that a success has many fathers, but now I know it has a very powerful mother (Sonia) too.
Sachin has no time even to spare for his wife and kids so what will he do in Rjya Sabha ? Congress has reduced the House of Elders to a mockery.
Seriousness no more exists in any Political Party .Every body is resorting to gimmickry to impress the Voters .
Better Sachin keeps away from the Politicians as he is too simple and honest person.He should concentrate on the Cricket in view of the World Cup and spend more time with is family.

Is this what Outlook thinks of Sachin?
Instead of taking some sound policy decisions and actually do work, Manmohan got busy in hiring Sachin et al to improve his party image. This step will surely upgrade credit/investment ratings for India. Another gem from sardarji.
Will the RS chairperson seek third umpire's help to know what ST is saying ?
Will ST play the proxy speaker in place of MMS ?
Was ST brought to RS to keep MMS company ?
Will ST play to the gallery ?
When will ST ask his 100th question ?
Sachin, bring in a law to divest sports bodies of politicians and get out of RS yourself. Nation will remember you for ever. Who knows - may be a Bharataratna for you!!
How on earth is Sachin going to make himself heard in RS ? Must train under S.S.Ahluwalia.
It is not fair to single out Sachin for all that is wrong in our country today. If he has been filing Income-tax returns under the category of '' artist'' instead of ''cricketer'', got additional FSI to build a gym in his house, manipulated waiver of cutoms duty on his Ferrari and sold it for a tidy profit, it is not very uncommon in India. At least he is not involved in any scam even if he is seen in the company of controversial politicians, industrialist, film stars. He is a great player, well-mannered person and good human being. We should ignore some of his failings. But do not make him God. This is, perhaps, our national trait. Either someone is hero or villain. His nomination to Rajya Sabha should be viwed as a normal matter. NDA also nominated Dara Singh. Even a person like Mani Aiyar ( who lost election to Lok Sabha)has been nominated to Rajya Sabha. Agreed, Sachin may not be a great orator just like Azharrudin. But he may bring some dividends to UPA at the election time. In short, a good investment by Congress for the future. Good luck Sachin in your new vocation.
I don't understand what skills Sachin has to be a member of Rajya Sabha. Some of his conducts have been rightly pointed out by ShadyIyengar.
If any cricketer deserves it, it is Rahul Dravid. A career that epitomizes dignity, resolve and team-first attitude. A personal life that is blemishless. He is truly the brightest icons in an era where the country has been hungry for role models.
Sachin an MP in the Rajya Sabha? Why, what's the matter with Dravid or Kumble?
With this acceptance, Sachin's conversion from "God" to a simple "attention whore" is complete. It's hardly surprising from someone who evaded taxes on an imported ferari, has a 70 crore mansion in Mumbai and is a little lap-dog of the Ambanis.
Rajiv Shukla is a cunning politician. They should ban politicians from sports body.
Sachin a great cricketer does not mean he cannot go to corrupt party. He was critisized for being a selfish cricketer whom records matter, by meeting mistress he would prove it beyond doubt. by joining congress he would hit his head on an axe just like amitabh bachhan did. he was never great to many now many more will curse him.
Sachin, You let me down again man.
The cry baby shot in front of Sai baba wasn't enough?
Sachin should have paid respect to patriotic Advaniji,than go to Quattrocchi's benefactor Sonia Gandhi.Sachin has earned his greatness by dint of his contribution to cricket.He should not allow Sonia and Rahul to shine in his reflected glory.
The country has gone totally nuts and crazy.
