Eye candy

Again, I have no idea what this gentleman's politics are, but I have to share this delicious eye-candy:

Unusually for Dr. Abdullah, he is not doing his English Dandy look but instead his casual attire recalls images of Superman. Pretty great subliminal message as far as the propaganda imagery goes. I am referring to the white t-shirt and what looks like the hint of a cape. However, I have seen his opponent, who won the election, wearing what I assume is a traditional cape worn in his country, and in that case, it's a clever blending of traditional fashion, authority, monumentality, and contemporaneous images of heroes. But let's face it, he's just gorgeous.
