    Thumbs down rank & rich

    Kindly explain the meaning of the erxpressions in bold in the following two paragraphs: (1) The Pakistani Cricket team is held for questio0ning in the suspected murder of their coach. A wonderful global advertisement of rank bad behaviour. (2) The General (Musharraf) himself stifles dissent at home and forcefully discourages probity while promising freedom to the Kashmiris. Now that is rich. And we negotiate with him, in the hope that this shining beacon of democracy will bring everlasting peace to the subcontinent. That is naive. A man who has been two timing his principal protectors and benefactotrs is hardly likely to play fair with 'enemy' India.
