How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Malaysia needs more Ibrahim Alis, says Dr M
http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/226006

I am reminded of Tun Dr Mahathir's own quote: 'Melayu mudah lupa' or 'Malays forget easily'.

I remember vaguely about Ibrahim Ali and his promise to piss on Dr M's grave, so I searched and sure enough, my memory serves me right...

Found this in malaysiafactbook.com:

Talk:Ibrahim Ali

Excerpt:

"As they say, one must take the bad with the good, warts and all. But Ibrahim Ali is all warts and nothing more."  —  Raja Petra Kamarudin

In politics, as in show biz, one needs to be outrageous to become famous. In fact, one needs to also be radical, extreme, loud and controversial. And these are all things Ibrahim Ali is. — Raja Petra Kamaruddin

Extract of article written by Raja Petra Kamaruddin at FreeAnwar - Ibrahim Ali: Prince of frogs, but certainly no Prince Charming

"I can die and be reborn but I will never rejoin Umno, swore Ibrahim Ali in his sumpah keramat (solemn oath). When Dr Mahathir, that Mamak (Indian Muslim) dies, I will piss on his grave, promised Ibrahim Ali. Then, before you can finish uttering, “Croak, croak”, he rejoins Umno and swears allegiance to Dr Mahathir. Then, with tears in his eyes, (toad tears mind you, not crocodile tears) he pleads with all and sundry not to defile Dr Mahathir who has done so much for this nation. Insult me all you want, said Ibrahim Ali, even call me a frog if you wish, but please do not say anything bad about Dr Mahathir for he does not deserve these insults."

This is the best example of the truism: 'In politics, there are no permanent friends or enemies.' Except Dr Mahathir's hatred for Anwar Ibrahim, I think.

I am just wondering if Tun Dr Mahathir and Ibrahim Ali are assets or liabilities to Umno in this coming Mother of all General Elections.
