What's up with the politics nowadays?
We have had one too many by-election burdens recently.
The first one was feverish and exciting.
The second one was ok.
Then the next got tiresome. (yeah, we all know who will win anyway)
Then another seemed to dragged on and on.
And now, not another one?!?!?!
It seems like we get a by-election for almost every imaginable reason.
Someone died. By-election.
Someone resigned to make way for husband. By-election.
Someone was about to be charged with corruption. Resign and fled country. By-election.
Someone resigned. By-election.
Someone caught with compromising pictures. Almost resigned but did not. Almost by-election.
Someone took your parking spot. By-election?
Someone honk you on the road. By-election?
Someone resigns and go sell char kway teow. By-election?
Someone puff smoke in your face. By-election?
Man, what the heck am i talking? *brain freeze*
Ok, so that's not the end of the story.
Fairus somore threaten PKR not to main-main with him, else he will expose the juicy details on the internal operations of PKR.
Hm, i bet now the BN folks are getting ready the popcorn to enjoy the show.
