May the farce be with you

I have written a lot about Sami Haddad, the previous Lebanese Minister of Economy and Trade, seen here rejoicing the idea of selling the country's assets to the private sector, as the caption in this Akhbar article puts it. He was spotted chairing a session yesterday in the meeting of the Arab Economic Forum, where the minions of the neo-liberal Lebanese economic regime were pushing so hard for privatization that a banker had to call them to order. If that is not hilarious, I don't know what is.
