Meral Aksener: Who? And guys…forgive my snark on anything Turkey-related these days…

26 Oct

Knowing nothing, when I first saw headline I was eager to see if new leader of new party had a mustache — prophecy being that Turkey will be saved when it next has a leader without a mustache.  Turns out he’s a she.  Does anybody have any more info on her than what the pretty laconic Al Jazeera article provides?  Is she an attempt to resurrect the CHP?

“Turkey will be good”?  whooooohhh…  That’s some pretty heavy language.  And embarrassing in its naivité and probable counter-productiveness.

And guys…forgive my snark on anything Turkey-related these days…it’s the only reaction I can summon.
