Please send more ties to Misha

I think that Mikheil Saakashvili is getting more nervous every day about the upcoming elections. Then again, maybe it is just coincidence that Georgian police stopped a Cartu Bank vehicle owned by Bidzina Ivanishvili and then seized the cash ( If Misha is not concerned about the upcoming elections, then he should be concerned about the negative publicity his party is gaining every time it blocks Ivanishvili’s path to become a candidate. Either way, the president is chewing on his ties, so please help by sending him some replacements. I think that Saakashvili should show the world that he wants Ivanishvili to run for office. Then Misha should campaign hard so that his political party maintains control of Parliament. Then he should refuse an offer to become Prime Minister (if such an offer is made). If he follows my advice, he’ll become a hero and gain acclaim as the “father of Georgian democracy.”
