"I am confident of winning even if not by an overwhelming majority," Arif Shah - the Barisan Nasional candidate-designate - declared last night, an opening shot in his bid to wrest the seat from PKR in the Aug 26 by-election. This moron aka racists aka street thug must be talking through his ass. Behaving just like those other politicians blowing their trumpet through the MSM just before our sports contingent leave for any sports meeting with high hopes without looking at merits at all. Such talks without substance doesn't work with the people anymore. As a matter of fact, it has ceased to work a long time ago. Despite the fact that BN has already started their machinery namely the MSM to publicize and unfairly blowing up Pakatan's teething weaknesses, and their so-called dogs to fabricate up charges, the People and Anwar should prevail again and will continue to prevail. Don't agree? Call for snap election then and find out!! A simple analysis can tell us why. If Permatang Pauh were to fall to BN, it would have fell in 2004 when the people unanimously threw their support behind Pak Lah mainly to revolt against Mahathir. Oppositions fell like ten pins at that time but Permatang Pauh held on strongly. And this time around, it is going to be the same.
