Look at that face. Such a sweet, innocent, pretty little kitten.
As a woman, I couldn't have an impure thought about this particular fellow, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
That would be so gay (no offense to LGBTs out there).
Mean jokes aside, someone out there must be seriously lacking in creativity by attempting to pull the same stunt twice.
I mean, really. Sodomy? That went out of fashion 10 years ago, along with mattress-touting, condo-surveillance and black-eyes.
Assume Anwar was indeed bi. Do you think he would really resort to messing with his personal aide when Lorong Haji Taib in Chow Kit is crawling with umm... shall we say, 'options'?
After all the publicity and rough treatment he went through in the hands of our politicians and their running dogs, the law enforcement?
To quote the most popular quote making its way around the Malaysian blogosphere (I've seen it on 5 blogs already):
The notion that a 61-year old with a bad back can forcibly sodomise a strapping 23-year old is laughable. This is simply not the kind of thing that anyone, not even Anwar’s harshest critic, is going to believe.
Makes sense, too.
I'm sure there must be someone out there who thinks Anwar is guilty of this, but I really haven't met that person yet.
My Australian colleague emailed me saying, "I see that bar1s@n na51onal is up to its old tricks again." We were using our company email accounts, hence the necessity for leet encryption.
Yep. I must admit my colleague is a very intelligent man with a reasonably good grasp of Malaysian politics (no thanks to yours truly!). But I don't think you need his IQ level to grasp the fact that BN is up to no good.
No one is fooled, really, though some are concerned - especially the tourists.
I have an American acquaintance working in China who had plans to stop by in Malaysia en route his travels through Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.
Today he drops me an email. "I've been reading about your politics," he says. "Do I have cause for concern?"
These lame stunts have no role but to harm the tourism industry and tarnish the name of the Malaysian government.
But will they learn?
