No, we aren’t talking about Barisan Nasional politicians here.
At least they get something for being silly enough to defend 1MDB as the best idea that went awry and left a big black hole for Malaysians to fill, and that their beloved leader is either clueless or cunning enough to be Mr Teflon or Malaysian Official 1 in everything but name.
Today, we are talking about little kids who prance about as national politicians in a schoolyard spat over whether to hold snap state elections in Penang in the wake of Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s graft charges.
What can one actually say about this if they conduct their affairs in public, on social media? Freedom of expression? Transparency? Democracy?

You would be plumbing the same kind of depths Malaysian Official 1 has thus far.
