dead & buried

when the party that claims to represent my interest is helmed by a scandal-tainted yes-man & an impatient power-hungry wannabe, my gut feeling is that it has gone down a very slippery slope into a political cess-pool.


& when the outspoken lone ranger, the only one currently with the courage to raise issues that matter, is unceremoniously dumped, again my gut feeling is that palms have been greased & pockets lined with ill-gotten gains the delegates did not vote by conscience.


whether it will go the same way as it's cousin in penang & be sidelined into irrelevance (or worse, oblivion) is left to be seen.

we all know gut feelings sometimes come true & i don't believe i am the only one in sack-cloth today.

PS. perhaps this phrase was specifically coined for politics : nice guys finish last.

Read the Sun this morning and actually i was amazed that he became the chairman.. as for me, pushing his personal problem aside, i had hope that he would win.. and he did... :)
by the way, am i talking on the right track here?

a Muslim approached me and told me he was amazed this could happen in our country. he then compared him with Tok Guru. I have nothing against CSL nor do I hold him tainted by the scandal but his position is already compromised by a non too rosy perception from day one

Zewt,

not exactly, because we are in fine company with some of the central American & African countries.

doc said...

STP,

sex always sells but porn stars & disgraced politicians should not be in leadership position - setting bad example la!

doc said...

Claire,

yes, we are on the same track & referring to the same person. so, you have a thing for horny middle-aged men, huh??

;)

doc said...

Jo,

ah, thank you for your company!

doc said...

Beng,

because of the scandal, he will ALWAYS be a liability to his party & the coalition

perhaps, he's only a temp, just warming the hot seat for his deputy.

Hey..... The tainted leader was only elected by a fraction of the entire members, therefore the system itself is already tainted.


As far as i am concerned the M the C and the A is already irrelevant....

never did like 'men in white' anyway.. during the high drama of his scandal, I bump into CSL entourage of bodyguard, wife & secretary on a flight to PEN some time ago, he & mrs have that 'Stick a gun to my face & I will blow you off type of look'

anyway, being a dr, me thinks he won't dare another round of oral sex coz of the reported rise of HPV related neck & head cancer. the mistress will chop his* off

doc said...

Eugene,

to be fair, i'll see what the tainted one can achieve during this transition period. i still think the party is in transition because he appears to be a stop-gap measure - no one is ever going to believe he will be leading in the long term.

Missyc,

one thing is for sure - being Top Dog in the health ministry will guarantee a steady supply of (free)viagra.
