One week since 12GE and the circus we witnessed
Posted on March 15th, 2008 by Lilian • Filed under: politics
A week ago, we never expect a huge political tsunami to hit us, especially Selangor, Perak, Penang and Kedah (plus Kelantan). The election result was probably the most thrilling. Much more thrilling than watching any World Cup, Thomas Cup or Olympics. It is because we were part of the culprits which caused the upsets.
Some people see it as an election of winning. I see it as an election of losing. Between seeing the people I voted for winning and watching the fall of Samy Vellu, Zainuddin Maidin, that ex-Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk FU and the demise of MCA and Gerakan in Penang, I have to admit that I was happier looking at the losers.
Coincidences had led me to mingle with the voters and it is through the direct interactions with those people that make me realised a lot of things. It was an election that has brought us all together as one united force. On the eve of the election day, PAS had a mass prayers with all Muslims, the Christians too had called for every Christians to pray and I am sure all the other faiths too have their own prayers. For one single occasion like this, all of us came together as one.
But once the election is over and the new state Government just about to take over, sore losers are out to create chaos. I see it as a disrespect of our choices. Let’s see the circus…in briefs:
Ong Ka Ting and Koh Tsu Koon took the gentlemen way of offering to step down as an act of responsibility. Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon earned my respect most.
Tun Mahathir hinted to Pak Lah to do the same because Tun said Japanese would commit harakiri as a dignified way of going out. His son echoed Tun’s suggestion. The whole scenario of asslickers played out in front of our eyes through national TV and papers. But I wonder where is KJ? I noted Hishamuddin has taken on a milder approach. (smart move but too late)
The Federal Government who won a slim majority continue to live in denial. Relevant, masih relevan, still relevant are the last straws they hang on to. Even an uneducated woman like me knows how grave the situation is. The country lost some of her richest states. The Federal Government has mostly MPs from the East Malaysia. I am now looking forward to the appointment of the Ministers and the Parliament meetings. I think we can unsubscribe Astro and just enjoy the members of Parliament show. I guarantee it will be filled with humour, suspense, drama, emotions and horrors.
The finger pointing started too. Chua Jui Meng blamed Ong Ka Ting. Ong Ka Chuan who is one of the few MCA members surviving suddenly become a hero and tried to take on Lim Guan Eng. Lim Keng Yaik and Ong Ka Chuan blamed Lim Kit Siang for ‘selling’ out the Perak state to PAS.
Until now, I still believe LKS’s statement on boycotting the swearing in of the Perak MB have a lot of untold things. The case in Perak is almost solved. Meanwhile, I read that Selangor PAS and UMNO had a secret meeting.
The most jialat sore losers of all, UMNO showed their worst sides. We are all so thankful that we have voted them out of our state. They tried pitting Malays against Malays and Malays against Chinese. I do not understand why they have to continue having the ‘victim mentality’ of demanding for rights like they are some slaves with no land, no dignity and no respect.
The media continue fooling us. JeffOoi just revealed what kind of thing Bernama is stuffing into our minds. I wonder how long the media can continue to play the racial card on us? Below is a quote taken from Bernama to our CM YAB Lim Guan Eng for misquoting LGE.
I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for the sloppy editing in the news story of March 12, 2008, which we mistakenly quoted you as commenting on the May 13 incident as well.
Then, there is a big boo-boo with regards to the Perlis MB. Pak Lah chose one, the Sultan picked another. Now, Pak Lah left the guy he chose stand-swimming. See the kind of leader we have?
I see UMNO cracking. I see MCA cracking. And if Gerakan survives, then, it is probably because they are smaller and hence, less internal fighting.
Of course, the most ‘historical’ is our beloved Mr. Sami Bulu who refused to disappear in a dignified way. I wonder if we are going to miss him or is he going to be around to provide us some laughs?
Regular Joe and Jane like you and I don’t really feel or bother about the impact of changing state government. Life goes on as usual for us except that we get to enjoy laughing at so many ugly sides of those ex-politicians surfacing in times of crisis. But I really wonder how those taukehs, ali babas, kroni and etc are going to survive now that they need to start ass-licking from the ground up? I tell you hor, it is not easy wor.
One week only and we already have so much excitement of a street protest in Penang, banners asking for Pak Lah to resign in KL, now-you-get it, now you don’t Menteri Besar appointments and hysterical leeches who lost the big fat thigh they suck on and decide to sue the Chief Minister of Penang. This is so fun. How can you not love politics for the humor, lies, life and sex (scandals) they provide? There are just so much of The Most Obnoxious 5xmom elements, isn’t it?
Hidup 5xmom! 5xmom tak akan lenyap di Malaysia. Bwahahaha. Capalang, hampalang, siaolang.
