After all, there is no opportunity for anyone to challenge the plausibility of one's statements.
But on Malaysiakini, Zaid Ibrahim has challenged the cowards.
Zaid suggested that the best test for Najib's theory would be to call for a snap election in Perak.
"The proof of the pudding lies in the eating," retorted Zaid.
"Let's see the Prime Minister, who engineered the BN takeover of the Perak state government last February, test the verdict of the people more than six months after taking over that state," he elaborated.
"Najib is telling Pakatan that since the boot is on the other foot, we are hobbling about from the discomfort of it all," said Zaid.
"Well, why doesn't he turn our discomfort into presumable misery by calling for snap elections in Perak to allow voters to rectify the mistake they made in March last year?" challenged Zaid.
And do you think they would even dare call for elections in Perak (or anywhere else, for that matter)?
In. Your. Dreams.
They had 52 years to make this country into something great. Instead, under their tender loving care, Malaysia is going to hell in a handbasket.
We may question Pakatan Rakyat for some of their policies. It is our legitimate right to do so.
But we wouldn't question their credibility, for whatever they have done or may do, they could hardly screw up as spectacularly as Barisan Nasional has managed (with such ease and flair).
Pakatan Rakyat would not allow hooligans to walk about with a cow-head and scream violence and other obscenities in the name of religion. They would not proceed to firstly, defend those fools and secondly, take absolutely no action over their misdeeds.
And for sure, Pakatan Rakyat would not arrest peaceful participants of a candlelight vigil and brutalise them just days after allowing the abovementioned hooligans to remain free.
Pakatan Rakyat may do some stupid things, but UMNO reigns supreme when it comes to blithering idiocy.
