Tranny of the Year (so far): The New York Times just published an article on Ali Saleem, better known to Pakistani prime time viewers as Begum Nawazish Ali, hostess of the wildly popular (at least among more secular Karachi residents) “Late Night Show With Begum Nawazish Ali.” A self-described transvestite who poses as a "flirty, teasing widow" who's obsessed with glamor and subtle political commentary, she somehow gets away with some amazing taboo-breaking she-ite on her weekly talk show over there.

First I melted, then I hit up YouTube. One word: WHAT??? People, I think I'm in love. Anyone who blames the government for her hair color in both Urdu (I think) and English -- and addresses her audience as "Johnnies" -- has my undying devotion. Work it out, lady.
