The art of the possibles

Politicians are strange animals. Some of them are very  flexible not unlike the bamboo tress, able to bend forward and backward depending on the directions of the winds blowing.

Politics is also the art of the possible. As CSL has so elegantly stated, the possible can be impossible and the impossible can be possible.

WHo would have thought that CSL , who was booted out of the second biggest component party is now the most powerful person , a power behind the throne as OTK has to bend to him for his support.

Who would have thought that the one now pushing the hardest for another EGM was the same one who has objected so vehemently to OTK calling for a second EGM after coming back from a short holiday,  following the loss of confidence votes in the first EGM?

This same one, LTL, has said that CC was the right forum to solve all the problems, and while what is said is still fresh in people’s minds, he executed a 180 degree turned and said that CC is not the right place to decide now and that the right forum would be a EGM.

Given the flip flop, I can’t help but wonder what would happen  if he becomes the president of the party ? If he can turn 180 degree now to suit himself, what is there to prevent him from turning 180 degree next time if he becomes the head, when his personal fortune is at stake? WHere will be the community interest and party interest?

When he can change goal posts just to suit his own interest in this party crisis, what is there to prevent him from changing the party direction when his own interest warrants the change in direction?

I have said this  just last month : Simple logic will tell us that if they can sell their principles just to move up, they can sell anything to get government positions , including the interests of the party and the community that these people represent.

I hope LTL should realise now that there is a perception in the Chinese community that he is not suitable to be a leader of a party claiming to represent the interest of the community. The perception is that he is only eager for position and power. Whether such perception is right or wrong, politics is really all about perception.

SO what he should do is perhaps to accept the olive branch extended to him by OTK, and remains as a vice-president and perhaps Minister of ‘Hell”, until the next party election in 2 years time., By then, given the short memory and selective amnesia of the party members, he may even have a comeback chance..He may even be able to challenge for a higher post.

OTK needs him now to balance CSL, who is the biggest winner despite having being caught pants down in a DVD last year.

LTL should not listen too much to the other 2 musketeers who have misled him and caused his downfall..

    I think they should not stop fighting but keep up the tempo..fight and back stabbing that is in their bloodline. If MCA members don’t back stab and kill each other they are not MCA members.

    Good for the country, for PR in the next GE.

    Come on MCA give us more and hollywood may decide to pick up your storyline.

    Now, this is a topic where I can get abusive. But dont stop me.🙂

    If you look at how Liow had behaved, he is the type that would sell his wife and mother to get the position. He is totally without principles. And of course totally immoral.

    Is the type of person MCA members want to have a President? If so, then this is end of MCA.

    Hey. Maybe he should be president. Then we dont have MCA to kick anymore.

    The old opera singers seemed to have stopped after CSL’s I give it you if you just say that you want it piece. I thought that was a brilliant move. Worthy of Kong Ming aka Chu-ke Liang (who incidentally is my favorite legendary hero).

    Dr. Hsu, since when you are so interested in MCA politics? To many Chinese Malaysians, MCA is no more significant to the community. But, by virtue of Umno still recognising MCA as representing the Chinese Malaysians, they still have some role to play for the community they so-called represents. Looking at these fools playing political games, I doubt they even have time to look at the community’s problems.

    Anyhow, there should not be any representation politics and I foresee, this is their last term for them to play. To them, this is their last chance to make their last pot of crumbs, in the mercy of their master.

    We can just close our eyes and put our bet on Pakatan Rakyat, however inferior they maybe. BN is just to rot and mou ghan tai.

    klm,
    he has not mastered the “Black thick theory”. Otherwise, he would be thick faced enough to say loudly” I want your position”. If that is the case, it would put CSL in a bind.. Give it to LTL or think out an excuse.. Probably will say” the time limit has passed, you said it too late”..

    See, if you want to srvive in the Most Chaotic Association, you need to have thick face black heart. He is black enough to stab his mentor in the back.. but face not thick enough.. Perhaps the W fellow’s face would be thick enough..

    I suspect C has mastered the art of thick black.

    Watching the fights is like watching a HK Wai Lai toi drama, only thing this is even more dramatic ..Even the most seasoned directors would not have dreamt of all the twists and turns… Perhaps they should come here and observe first hand and produce a serial ..

    Another thing is that we can observe how politics is really played in this country. And perhaps I would produce a book called politics of the impossibles.. and write about how politics are played ..

    What do LTL expected from this EGM? LTK didn’t have the courage and sincerety to lead MCA to greater height. MCA needed new leadership to steer a new direction and focus for MCA in the next decade in Malaysia politic. Is it time that the people should look for a new team that can lead them?

    What puzzled me most was not that about the sodomite LTL eying the posterior of OTK. Nor the twist and turn of that old and loosed pants playboy playing MacArthur’s – I shall return game which puzzled me most either!

    What really puzzled me most was, that dwarfish woman she was crying with rain of tears like her husband just committed suicide yesterday, in the CC, begged OTK to reconsider his resignation immediately after the 1st EGM, had turned her gun barrel and shot at OTK much more vigorous than anybody and her male counterpart!

    What’s the rationale behind this woman? Because of immense love which ultimately turned into hatred or sort of symptom of a post-natal depression of a woman, which would have only caused her lost sense to stab at the jugular of OTK, one who had picked her to the topmost post of a Senator she would have only dreamed of ?!

    Now I understand what my friend asked me, and the answer which i fully concur, that – the most horrific creature in this planet is one which bleeds for 7 days yet it never die!

    klm,
    to change this culture, the No 1 and No 2 should not be in the cabinet and holding any government positions..

    Lim KY once gave the minister post to Paul Leong even though he won the president post..That was how the culture of PortDickson spirit was cultivated in Gerakan.. Of course, now this is al; past..

    So OTK and CSL and LTL should all announced that they will not hold any positions since all of them always say tha tposition is not important..They must prove what they said..

    They can be vegetarians but if they behave ike what they are behving now, they would never get good karma..

    Dr,

    OKT thought like you say but soon realised a fatal mistake (being not in Cabinet). He had to be briefed by those in Cabinet at that time, (i.e. his brother OKC). MCA lost the no 1 voice in Cabinet and the party was down ranked. The MCA boss always sits next to alligator No. 1 but soon those had to stand behind. No face lah. It doesn’t work if both alligators not in the Zoo.

    You must have the position to get respect of the other parties and from inside. Politicians only know one thing. Power. With a position there is no power and no one want to know you. Ong Ka Ting thought he was smart by not taking the minister post.

    That is why KTK, by hook and by back door will want a minster post. Insult aside, without a minister post, he got bullied by the Penang Umno mamaks. Those monkeys only know power.
