The word 'tsunami' became better known only after the devastating
Landslide sounds not only more traditional for political wins but also appropriate, because not all sides are crushed by a landslide, but almost everyone would perished when hit by a tsunami.
Thus the word 'tsunami' to describe a 'landslide' election victory would be inappropriate as both sides would have perished and thus lose.

'Tsunami' is now a very useful word for BN to perpetuate the specter of the Chinese takeover of the Malay government, something which is impossible but with images conjured up by the word, they make this fear, however non-existent, become the 'truth'.ReplyDelete
