Defending Khairy And Bashing Dr Mahathir

This is so very odd.

My cousin voted for the Opposition in last year's general election because she was so fed up with Barisan Nasional.

The face of Khairy Jamaluddin, she said, was one reason she rejected BN because Khairy represented the abuse, the corruption and all that went wrong for the BN under his father-in-law.

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was literally PM-in-absentia.

The Opposition at that time was not Pakatan Rakyat but individual parties. She voted for the DAP and PKR.

She was naturally aghast that Pakatan Rakyat had conducted itslef pretty miserably and betrayed people like her.

For instance, when Pak Lah was stepping down, several Pakatan leaders said, no no, he shouldn't.

"What the F****?" she screamed in her text to me!

Yeah. I'm wondering what's goin' on back home?

What's the deal?

You'd send Malaysia to destruction just so you can take over the country?

No go, man.

Recently, of course, with the new government under Datuk Seri Najib Razak, we hear Pakatan voices defending Khairy and whacking Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

So, ok. We understand your issues with the Tun. But why whack him in defence of Khairy?


"I voted for the opposition because I rejected the likes of Khairy and now you are supporting Khairy? What game are you playing-lah?"

Hey. I'd like to know too!

What is your struggle, Pakatan? Stay focus, man. Or you will expose your own lack of direction and a very muddled struggle.

Celebrities and Adopting Poor Third World Kids

Should I laud Madonna for her steadfastness in wanting to adopt a Malawian child?

I remember watching TV and how the TV presenters crucifies the Malawian authorities for making it difficult for Madonna to adopt 4 year-old Mercy James.

This presenter said Madonna was giving Mercy a good life and these stupid authorities were questioning her morality?

Mercy will die of hunger in Malawi, stupid!

Which brings me to this issue about Hollywood celebrities penchant for adopting kids from poor countries.

No doubt they love children. I suppose, on the outset, we could say that they're doing it all for humanity, charity.

We should be happy for these kids, you know. They're better off with these glitzy celebrities to call mommy and daddy.

But, really...I dunno.

Aren't there needy kids where they come from?
