I am quite surprise that a no brainer decision such as DS Najib appointing what seems to be a capable and CLEAN cabinet has found arguments of Socratic proportion against it in a series of posts and comments that follow in the euradite Sakmongkol AK47 blog.
Well! In not so many words, Scorates and corruption.. It must rank high in the list of ultimate oxymorons. Dato Sak seems to get totally suckered by KJ's enormous talent and use the full extend of his cerebral AK47 firepower to argue KJ should be in the cabinet NOW.
He seems oblivious to the fact that KJ was found guilty of corruption and in the politics of these days and age that is an enormous liability, and find it difficult to understand on the balance of KJ's enormous proven liability against his enormous unproven talent, the tilt is on KJ's liability to be factored in DS Najib's decision making.
Datuk Sak even agreeed at one point what a deft political move by Najib not to include KJ in his cabinet given the scenario but a recurring theme in his posts is TDM as the figure behind the decision.
This is not giving DS Najib a lot of credit, we are talking about a guy who got to be in a position where Ku Li, Musa Hitam, Ghaffar Baba and Anwar Ibrahim never got to be, here. Pak Lah was an exception, its written in the 'Luh Mahfuz' a bozo was to be Najib's predecessor probably as a 'hikmah' for him to take lessons from.
Whether TDM is around or not to make DS Najib's life miserable or otherwise, DS Najib needs a capable and CLEAN cabinet PERIOD and he make the decision for a capable and CLEAN cabinet.
If anything, TDM and just about a zillion others including yours truly with his 'pistol air' was only pointing out the obvious.
