And You Thought Malaysian Politicians Were Stupid

Most of you know that this is a Malaysian blog dedicated to whipping Malaysian politicians into shape.

But every now and then, out pops a foreign politician that makes you slap your forehead in dismay.

I don't know about you, but I think this politician from Australia needs a refresher course in the world of technology.

Thinking he was sending a private message to a journalist, he posted it in public. On twitter.

If you have a twitter account, you would know how fast news travels. It was sensitive information, and harmful to party image - not just that of the politician in question.

Of course, it begs the question: Why was he supplying a journalist with that information in the first place?

The problem with this group of paramecia we call politicians is that we let them roam freely among the good citizens of this world.

Rightfully, they should be locked up in some gardens with a leash around their necks. They should be provided with bibs during mealtimes so they don't soil their clothes.

God knows we all need protection from them. Heck, they need protection from themselves!

Fall on your sword, dimwit.

And while you're at it, get the crony behind you too.

That's what I'd say to any stupid politician.

It's actually refreshing read a politician speaking the truth for once, as one of the readers' comments on that story says.

Ranga is Oz slang for a redhead. Barry The Twit is referring to the new PM Julia Gillard.

Pat - thanks! :-)

Shar - that's a good one. if only they'd oblige us by falling on their swords.

jugular - ah, so *that's* what ranga means. I did wonder. I don't think Julia Gillard would be very appreciative of that comment.
