|as silent as the dead|
... and leaving Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim (supposedly of Team W, but definitely not of Team A) out on a limb, so much so the other Pakatan parties DAP (Tony Pua) and PAS (Dzukefly Ahmad) had to quickly step into the Talam issue to rescue the besieged PKR MB.
The Talam case, raised by MCA's young Chua, son of CSL, was the sort of alleged financial entanglements that would have been right up the expertise alley of PKR's whiz kid, Rafizi Ramli, for him to solve or speak out competently against Chua Junior.
But as I remarked in my earlier post, Rafizi kept so f* silent on the MCA's sniping, swiping and scandalizing against Khalid Ibrahim, a PKR MB, that the vacuum became embarrassingly deafening, perhaps a la the tagline of the film Alien, namely 'In space no one can hear you scream' where in beleaguered Khalid's case could be presented as 'In PKR no one can hear Khalid scream' wakakaka.
|In space no one can hear you scream|
Rafizi is seen as a member of Team A, well ... at least for now as he not only outshines Azmin Ali like a supernova to the struggling light from a wet matchstick, a no-no situation for the latter wakakaka, but also possesses the greatest potential to dethrone the PKR Crown Prince, a mere political pygmy in the scheme of Pakatan politics.
Rafizi's silence only accentuates the theme of RPK's article The weak link is getting weaker which suggests an internecine war within PKR where Team A is not only sabo-ing Team W kau kau but may also, unbelievably treacherous as it may sound but standard fare in the vicious villainous vipers' pit that is PKR, get rid of Anwar Ibrahim.
Déjà vu Anwar's 1998 attempt to remove Dr Mahathir? Fitting sweet justice? wakakaka.
It's undeniably common knowledge that Anwar has been perceived as always backing Azmin Ali, even against daughter Nurul Izzah or wife Wan Azizah, for when it comes to the Crown Prince, water suddenly becomes thicker than blood for Mr Manmanlai.
But ironically, without Anwar, Azmin Ali will be even less than the political pygmy he is already seen as, for without his principal backer, sponsor, godfather, what have you, Azmin on the national political landscape will be zilch, nada, kosong, k'ong k'ong, zero.
So indeed if as RPK's article postulates, he attempts to remove Anwar Ibrahim as the last obstacle to his wet dreams of becoming PM in a Pakatan government post GE-13, he'll be in for an unhappy surprise wakakaka, and PAS may be already in orgasmic anticipation of stepping in to replace a deposed Anwar.
Anyway, back to the whiz kid, Rafizi Ramli, who has now suddenly sprung up to counter-threaten Chua junior with scandalous exposure, as reported by Malaysiakini's Rafizi threatens to reveal MCA-Talam links, but alas, seems to be doing so with a lack in the usual depth of vigour which we have come to associate him with, in his exposé of BN's naughty-naughty schemes like NFC and the Ampang LRT extension.
WTF does he mean by 'threatens to reveal'?
Either he reveals or he shuts up, full stop.
Besides, he is proposing to only exchange shit with Chua Junior instead of demolishing and clearing allegations against Khalid's governance? A feeble effort by Team A.
I suspect Rafizi has only come in at this late stage because he personally must have been stung by numerous sources, perhaps even including insignificant kaytee's blog wakakaka, criticizing him for malulah not coming swiftly to the defence of Khalid but shamefully acting dunno and leaving it to the DAP and PAS to rescue a PKR MB.
He wants to restore his personal reputation.
Anyway I feel his half hearted attempt, just exchanging shit with Chua Junior instead of clearing Khalid Ibrahim (like what Tony Pua has done), is too little too late.
