SHOW HAND! Part 2

In July I wrote about the on going Texas Hold Em that our politicians are playing in Show Hand.

That was 4th of July mind you... today 17th Sept 2008... and they are still playing the game... past the designated date of 16th September. The stakes are getting higher as Barisan kept upping the stake to call Anwar's bluff, but on every occasion, Anwar manage to up the stake and keep a straight face.

Lets see, since then....

Anwar implicated in sodomy... Anwar won by bigger majority in P44 Permatang Pauh... BN send a team of 49 backbenchers on a pleasure trip to Taiwan... Anwar claimed to have sent a letter to PM to discuss the "smooth transition... PM claim the letter was non-existent.. the whole BN wants to know the list... Anwar says, "No can do... you will harrass them." PM says "BULLSHIT! Why should we harass them?"

Now... if we read closely... I remembered clearly, Anwar said that they sent a letter to PM to discuss about the country and the recent ISA arrest... to which the PM acknowledged receiving.. but its the second letter presumably was sent and not received... (That is a question)

Secondly, will BN harass the names in the list? I think we should look no further than the use of ISA on the famous 3 recently to answer that question... looking further back, we have the Dr. Osman from Pusrawi, Bala, the PI in Altantunya's case as well as the transfer of Imam Ramlang from National Mosque to justify the fear of releasing the list of names...

Why would BN be so anxious in wanting the list of names??? The answer is a no-brainer actually.. but BN does have a choice.. either to use the carrot or the stick on the list of names...

No doubt that Pakatan now says that they are not fixated on 16th Sept but I guess their credibility did take a knock when despite all the chest thumping and loud proclamation nothing happened and that BN is claiming a morale boosting victory when nothing occured, Pakatan must now show some dissenting voice, a few names that dare to come out and move across the divide immediately to prove to the people that all that talk is not empty... Pakatan MUST add the pressure... Pakatan MUST UP the stakes.... before BN gets bolder to call your bluff...

Well, the article earlier was written in a jiffy before lunch and it was after lunch that with a more comfy stomach... err.. to all that is puasa-ing my humble apologies, it was not my intent to tempt you guys on empty stomachs... now.. back to the story... Come to think of it....

PM, Abdullah has the ace that he could play yesterday. He could immediately say he would meet Anwar regardless of whether the letter was sent out or not. Then it would be up to Anwar if he has the balls and guts to meet Abdullah with the "list". But Abdullah chose not to meet him and so the bets goes on... Abdullah could have hit limit up and wait for Anwar to fold or call, but he chose not to... why? Is it a lingering fear within Abdullah that he may have more than 30 turncoats in his midst? Could it be that Abdullah is only carrying the Ace of Hearts and fearing that Anwar is holding the Ace of Spades? Why the delay Abdullah? Why the delay Anwar?

Sigh, again we can see our PM so FLIP FLOP. Got receive letter say never receive. Why should Anwar tell who are the froggies? UMNo would definitely harass and screw the frogges.

To me, it looks like a very desperate measure. He relinquishes money for raw power... mebbe he cannot trust No. 2 with the army... next thing he tell botak.. he will takeover home ministry and botak will be 1st deputy home minister...
