Zambry is not a very smart man

by Martin Jalleh

BN-appointed menteri besar Zambry Abd Kadir thinks he is very slick and smart. Sadly, he has shown himself to be very shallow and slow.

He had very gleefully posed what M’kini called a “pertinent question” to the Menteri Besar of Perak Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin. He had thought he had delightfully delivered a body blow, damned his rival, and driven him to the ground.

Zambry claimed that Nizar had stated his position as ‘Pasir Panjang assemblyman’ and not as ‘menteri besar’ in his nomination papers filed last Saturday, to contest the Bukit Gantang by-election on April 7.

“All this while, he has been telling the whole world he is the lawful menteri besar. So why didn’t he address himself as the menteri besar in the nomination papers?” exclaimed Zambry, much to the delight of the crowd comprising mainly women and the elderly. (M’kini)

The answer is very simple and it reflects how astute a politician Nizar really is. He has taken into account the politicial realities that he has to contend with — realities that appear more and more grotesque with each passing day in Bukit Gantang.

If he had stated that he is the Menteri Besar of Perak, his victory in the by-election will be challenged by Umno and its cohorts. Yes, this may sound ridiculous, but what is no longer ridiculous with regard to the powers that be? So here goes.

The Election Commission which had decided to play politics to ensure that the fraudulent Perak State Government comes into power, will declare that Nizar had made a “fraudulent claim” in the nomination papers!

Or Umno could resort to an Election Court and they could look for the most junior judge (judicial commissioner) in Perak (which made the judiciary the butt of everyone’s jokes by his jaundiced judgments) to decide that Nizar’s declaration was technically faulty!

Or the police, under the instructions of the Home Minister, who is slowly being nursed back to health after a badly bruised ego as a result of being rejected by his own party, could arrest Nizar for “impersonation”!

Nizar is not so naive as Zambry so desperately tries to project him. He is a humble man with nerves of steel. In fact, he does not need to state in his nomination papers that he is the true Menteri Besar. We Perakians know it in our hearts, and that would suffice.

It would be best that Zambry zips up, for his ignorance is becoming very glaring especially in Bukit Gantang.

    Is there a fine line between Zambie and Zombie?

    it is true that Nizar cannot afford to take the risk of having his nomination paper rejected due to technical error.

    Zambry is just a pawn in Najib’s moves to show he can reinvent UMNO. Unfortunately he chose another dickhead who is not able to engage Nizar in a debate. He did not even dare to stand against Nizar in Bukit Gantang. He could have shown the Perakians he is the anointed MB of Najib if he could win the buy-election. Even in this he has failed miserably. Zambry’s days as the false MB are numbered.

    Pakatan Rakyat cannot take everything to chance. The powers-that-be and their cronies are looking for loopholes to nail their opponents at any cost no matter how evil their acts are.
    Nizar is not naive and stupid to fall into their trap. The other side of the political is! Nizar is the best man for the job to represent Bukit Gantang. All the best to him and PR!

    By apply the knowledge of face reading you can differentiate the two. Look carefully at Zam and then Nizar. It was easy to differentiate.

    Zam thinks he is smart…reality is he has only straws between his ears! As usual UMNO politicians try to get cheap political points to please their masters.

    The pertinent question for Zambry is that, if he thinks that he is better than Nizar, why didn’t he contest as UMNO’s BN candidate for the Bukit Gantang parliamentary seat, in a direct confrontation against Nizar?

    Is it because Zambry himself is uncertain whether he actually has the people’s mandate to lead the Perak state government?

    Zambry, get lost, please.

    Hahaha, what a petty d##khead, hoi mamak don’t be a smart a##!
    We know how dirty UMNO goons are…you are outwitted by Nizar again. Go and tickle your innocent ignorant audience.

    The one najib and gangs could go as low as resorting all legal, semi-legal and illegal means to put the opposition into reverse gear. With the millions of war funds that can be smuggled back from abroad, only naive opposition will think that no one can be bought/sold for ‘kemewahan’.
    With a story like that of 3 Perakian/Malaysian traitors suspiciously sold their souls to the devil, it will be no surprise that rogue personnel in charge of this election can also be bought or sold.
    So Nizar has taken the right move of not fallen into the trap set by the one najib and its gangs.
    I have intentionally used small cap when refering to the one najib and ‘its’ and I am not sure for its creditability as our premier.

    In BN-UMNO and Zambri’s mind, they are lamenting the fact that Nizar did not list his occupation as the MB of Perak. Deep in their self-serving and deep-rooted antagonistic and biased mind they had hoped that Nizar had committed that silly technical error.

    Now they are trying to fool themselves and others that Nizar did not claim to be the MB. In their small hearts they are crying and cursing at the intelligence of Nizar and Co.

    Good luck Nizar. Good Luck PR.

    Just look at him, will give an impression of a mamak. Our country for the past 50+ years till todate, we have seen and experience upteem times of race and religion issues between all races. Some are actually real scary. There are people who beleive that these issues are mostly caused by people who claimed to be holier than thou or who claim they are the defender of race and religion. And to some extent of claiming that they are the true malays and expert on religion. Actually some of these guys are just “pendatang” and apportunists. Sure they are “smart”, like glorying themselves as bumis and great defender of religion. They played on the naiveness of some good, humble, true malays.
    Just look at one current issues on another “pendatang” racialistic guy on portraying himself as a great defender of race and religion.
    It really makes one sick to see how these politicians spend the people’s money and get away with it. Really disgusting to the core.
    On an unrelated issue, where are those cows and cars now in MACC?? They claim to be fair and unbiased. What actions have they taken on these bums who use rakyst money to enjoy?? Yet, they are soo…..”fast” and “effiicent” when it comes to oppositions. Are they again going to be “dudok diam diam” or just drag on until the rakyat forget.
    If MACC is not the BN running dogs what they are?? Hope they so called “chief” can give rakyat an answer.
    I let the rakyat to decide.

    Zambry is desperado, a worried power crazy man. If he is truly interested in serving people he wouldn’t have accepted an appointed position tainted by corrupted party-hoppers.

    Zambry looks more Indian compared to Manikumar of Selambau.

    nothing much to shout bout him, a low IQ mamak, uncomparable to mamakhir or nor mamak.

    Who is Zambry?-The Menteri Besar of Frogs.

    In democracy,

    the people are collectively ‘the real King’

    so if you go against the wishes of the rakyat(The actual king), you are actually derhaka to the ‘actual king’ .

    Zambry did not know the meaning of democracy…..or pretend not to know the principles of democracy…

    Dear ReformMalaysia,

    Correction. Dr Zambri is not the “Menteri Besar of Frog’. The title is held by none other Anwar Ibrahim. It his Anwar who immortalises the idea of toppling a sovereign govt through bribery.

    Fortunately, he failed. And fail miserably. What a tragedy considering he is almost 60. Sudah tua tapi masih tak berubah. All his life he is knoiwn to be rebellious. He created slander on Tun Razak’s Govt by saying a farmed was starved to death in Baling.

    He backstabbed Abdullah by toppling the latter from the post of UMNO state Liason Chief. He backstabbed Tun Ghaffar by challenging him after repeatedly telling the world about he treated Ghaffar as a father.

    He backstabbed Dr Mahathir by UMNO General assembly to criticize the latter on cronism charge, only to be embarrased when the lists by Dr mahather showed that the people closed to him are the beneficiaries.

    He created slander against the Malays by agreeing to Hindraf’s mind boggling charge that UMNO led govt is involved in genocide against the Indians. The result is for all to see. Malays, upset on being charges as cruel punished Indian and Chinese BN politicians in the last election.

    What are the wishes of rakyat. They voted for BN Govt at federal . That is the fact that you should point out to Anwar. He is blinded by his own greed.

    Just because Malays( majority of them) do not participate in ncle Lim’s blog( hallmark is anti-Malay attitude) does not mean that they agree with Anwar.
