Comedic relief August 25, 2008

Our DPM may well have a future as a standup comedian, post-politics.

“I don’t see why a public holiday is needed as the by-election is exclusively for the Permatang Pauh constituency. This (declaration) must have been a political decision,” he said during a speech at a meet-the-people session in Mengkuang Titi, Penanti.

If the entire day was a holiday, he said, the state would face huge losses in terms of productivity. (More)

Which begs the question – why did the Gomen decide to hold it on a weekday then, if not to prevent outstation voters from returning, thus adding to BN’s political advantage?


This was related to us by one of the reporters who was very tickled by an MCA minister with the same potential for comedic relief.

During a press conference, a few days ago, at its operations centre at Sama Gagah, reporters grilled this Minister over the Umno anti-Chinese, anti-Indian propaganda materials, including the now infamous ‘cabinet babi’.

The Minister feigned ignorance.

One of the reporters then waved a copy and asked why then was MCA distributing it, if he didn’t have any knowledge of its existence.

The Minister hit the roof. Accused the reporter of ‘planting’ it. So the reporters pointed to a corner of the centre, where a group of volunteers were busy clipping them in piles for distribution by MCA volunteers.

The Minister was then forced to apologise. Three times, apparently.

Hi Liz, does the reporter have photos of the babi cabinet list in the MCA rom, it’d be great if you could post some here.

Hahaha, why you make us guess who it is la. But of all the MCA ministers hoh, the one who seems most unstable is the brother of the big MCA boss. I correct or not.

Well I suppose desperate measures for desperate times! Hahaha.
Anyway, the holiday is also to enable voters working in other states to come home and vote. Mind you, some of them are working in KL. They had chosen a weekday for obvious reasons!

DAMN FUNNY! How’s those volunteers look like? throwing a smile to the minister?

One day productivity loss compared to 51 years! Hey Najib, 51 years of productivity gains are in the pockets the UMNO crooks…including you, smart a**. I always believe, Truth is a winner!
Don’t worry Penanites, have a good holiday and PP voters, the future of Malaysia is in your hands, make sure, you vote these bunch of donkeys out. “Opportunity does not knock twice.”
