“ He has been, and still remains, a gutter politician,” .
-DAP national chairperson Karpal Singh.
"I Don't Care, as I was ......."
- Mahathir (When asked whether his resignation would prompt others to follow suit)
"It could be a blessing in disguise .... the thorn in the flesh has been removed...."
-Tun Musa Hitam
"The latest excuse is that this is for the sake of the Malay race....... while the welfare of the public is ignored."
"... playing to the gallery and being an opportunist
.....relying on the lowest common denominator,
.....Ketuanan Melayu issue again? .....Che Det has indeed come full circle
.....back to his ultra form but only for a certain audience
.....This is Mahathir for you."
- Oon Yeoh
PAS member Ismail Wan Teh, asked the former PM if he would take the lead. Dr Mahathir said the question sounded like a dare and said he would quit.
(Sounds more like an opportunist's response to the floor, so as to execute a plan for a sympathy trip, though).
As a result, there's a new show in town, and it's a real screamer too!
(Click Here to go to the Homepage - never mind .... just Google "Chedet.com". You'll somehow get there.) Apparently, the soundtrack will be on sale soon, and as a sneak preview,
here's the cover-
In fact, it is so "hot" right now, there have already been Four sold-out shows in the last 2-3 days alone!
Rumour has it, there's gonna be a fan club and the badge is gonna be plagiarised from that of this imageor even this.
There is one other Diaper-boy who also has gone on a blog-blitz to cry wolf (the star of the show is a called "Mad-hias Chang" - an expert on all things known to mankind).
All these dramatics may just be a "diversion tactic" from the issues at hand, by the old man, so as to steal away the thunder (or C4 ...).
For that to happen, one needs to create a bigger and better show.
Attempts at garnering the support of bloggers was launched with the help of some lackeys' write-ups and invitations to the Perdana whatever foundation - that didn't work.
Some "daddy's boy" tried a "che det" ala '69 ... but it didn't work either!
Then he boldly decides to jump the blogwagon along with other Toyols, Ketams and M&Ms, to go where no scum has gone - and that was a disaster!
With options depleted, a "Kuli ala '88", had to work - and voila .... what a thunder it was. The media was swept off their feet, and bloggers all joined in the fun!
Only, no lightning came after that thunder ........ but the simpletons start clamoring, as if they lost their rice bowl (which was empty anyway). (Refer to Hitler's quote below).
It is not known if the letter of resignation has been drafted or submitted as yet.
There are some individuals who offer to "talk to Mahathir" so as to C4 this idea of his to quit. (Maybe he can be the glue to hold it all together .... and score some points of virtue).
Mu-kris doesn't seem to subscribe to daddy's "wisdom", anyways (at least not yet - Mr. Zany does!). Not when he stands a good shot at the "leadership hierarchy", when Mr. Chris-Sham doesn't want to contest in this year's beauty peagent. This way, he can at least help dispel the notion that he's "daddy's boy". He actually thinks people are hard-up for his insignificant presence - he goes around giving threats to Pak Lah! He probably wants to provoke them into expelling him so as to create fireworks (which I doubt will work).
Most party stalwarts, hotshots, moles or cronies (except some geriatrics) don't seem to think this show is worth the effort.
Either that, or somebody just wants to play both the front and backdoor, so as to keep as many avenues/gutters open.
There's this strange feeling I get, that there'll be plenty talk about "Malay unity" soon, to enhance and fertilize the siege mindset.
People will talk, with plenty of dramatics, wayang and posturing - and then as if like magic, everybody will jump into bed to kiss and make up once again.
All for "bangsa, agama, dan negara".
All the contracts and the nation's wealth tied up with the Umno Baru aristocratic hierarchy is a different story, okay. Those can only be wrangled about in private, and we cannot talk about it - lest we be charged under OSA, ISA, PPPA.
Those are the only acts that the common man should know.
Umno aristocrats have other acts to work on, "in the interest of the people".
(Once again, for more information refer to quotes above and below...)
On the matter of the Lingam Tape RCI report, Mahathir has made a claim that implied that the post of the CJM is equal to that of any other ministerial or government post, in that many people came to lobby for these posts.
He also claims that he wasn't aware that judges who lobbied were commiting any wrongdoing.
He also said that Vincent Tan and Tengku Adnan never lobbied in this controversy.
So it appears that in Mahathir's eyes, only the Legal fraternity is guilty, and nobody else!!
Mahathir seems to hate all the judges and lawyers - all except his lackeys (?Eusof Chin, Fairuz, Lingam, Mathias and their ilk).
Ms Ambiga - over to you .....

and not in war-mongering nor in idiotic pride."

"All propaganda has to be popular, and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach."
"The real challenge will be between undertaking reforms to institutionalise democracy, uphold rule of law and combat corruption - or persist in the tried and failed policies of mediocrity, crony capitalism and violation of basic human rights.”
