The Man From La La Mancha; Don "Mahathir" Quixote And His Squire, Sancho "Ib Ali" Panza

It must not be fun being Tun Mamakhathir these days.

Unlike Najib who is said to have too much baggage when he became PM, old Tun retired as PM in 2003 with too much baggage. He had possibly hoped that his "Vision 2020" would be enough to set the nation on its way and cement his name in history as the greatest PM ever and ever will be.

Now it appears history will not be too kind to him and being quixotic in his twilight years reduces him to a farce. His latest outburst says it all; labelling those who advocate meritocracy racists is enough said. Tun, just be history ok? You're pathetic.

Read: Vision 2020

Che Det: "Is Meritocracy Racist"?

And Art Harun: "Eh, Tun Dah Lupa?"

Also: Zaid Ibrahim, "Malay By Heritage"
