It's been such a delight to be away, out of reach and out of sight for a few weeks. The days go by slowly, and mostly at your own pace. No politics, no world events, well, there was sports of course. What, you think I'd miss Malaysia kicking Indonesia's behind for the Sukan SEA Gold Medal?
What caught my attention, among the many, is the remark by Nga Kor Ming (yes, dap's very own ulamak who popularized Surah Aura to the Muslim masses) on the Perak MB, Datuk Seri Dr. Zambry Abdul Kadir as "hitam metalik" (metallic black) and "haram jadah" (either bloody bastard or bloody idiot). He even remarked Perak as Darul "kartun" (City of Cartoon). I guess Darul Kartun is much much better than having Perak Darul Sosialis.
Curiously, it's neither the tenacity nor the audicity of Nga's remarks that I find amusing. Why? Dap has always been a racist party, who doesn't know that? Even a seasoned politician like Zambry takes it like a man, and the fact that he's striding daily carrying out his duties is a proof to that. The fact that a man who tried to deceive Muslims into supporting the socialist dap by using the Qur'an has resorted to name calling...wow, when you thought nga could never go any lower, he sure proved us wrong. Whatever it is, he just turned dap into the non-Muslims' own version of pas. Now that's a guy who used to share the MB of Perak position with Ngeh. What? Nizar was just their Manchurian candidate.
Even these few months and weeks has seen the crumbling pakatan desperately looking for fresh and mind-blowing issues, but everything seems to kick them in the ass. The Seksualiti Merdeka fiasco gave them a severe black eye. So far, the big hoo-hah about Teoh Beng Hock fizzled out when dap backed out with their tails between their legs. They tried to make him a martyr to topple the government, but even then, truth opened a can of whoop-ass on the diabolical pakatan. Recently, we hear dap complaining about the 1Malaysia stores and menu...boy, the list gets more and more trivial from there. They keep complaining without any suggestions for resolution, and a few more mosquitos keep buzzing around the parliament.
I'm not sure where pas is, seems that after the mat sapu/mat indera debacle, the pas deputy president got a bit shrunken when it comes to making statements. Even their greatest coup of the time, bob lokman made a boob of himself, earning enmity from the people of Johor. The former entertainer and self-proclaimed ustaz declared Johoreans who lives in certain patys of Johor and work in Singapore are apostates, or murtad. I guess he elevated his status from self-proclaimed ustaz to a self proclaimed god as well, since he can freely make that decision without the aid of witnesses. Then again, like the rest of Malaysia, who cares? It's only bob lokman! Maybe if he deepens his knowledge on Islam instead of pas, maybe then he will understand.
Oh yes, and anwar? Well, anybody noticed that he's spending more time talking nonsense in Indonesia? I guess Najib's administration really neutralized him is US, and with the neo-cons out of power in Washington and his Freedom flotilla action, anwar is fast becoming a political pariah in the eyes of his once-supporters. Even back at home, a survey by Unit Kajian Media dan Pilihan Raya Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM) revealed that Anwar's popularity is at all time low while Najib remains strong as time goes by. Well, with all the scandals and his court cases, I'm sure Indonesia will provide him a fresh break, fresh audiences and Sukma.
UMNO is gearing up for the coming polls, and pakatan is already whipped, whoop-assed and crapped upon.
At one time, anwar and pakatan were riding high, but how the mighty have fallen. Worse, they got kicked when they were face down in cow dung.
Hey, it's good to be back.
