Some got father, others got mother

The Star's star political writer Jocelyn Tan among others wrote this in her column today,

The word is that Khairy has thrown his weight behind Hishammuddin.
He has reportedly sent out word to his boys on the ground to support the Defence Minister.
Khairy made a spirited speech at the event, lauding Hishammuddin as a friend of the youth generation.
Jocelyn also added that,

Khairy is playing a rather strategic game. It is no secret that he and Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir are bitter rivals. Their rivalry is complicated by the role that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad played in the premature exit of Khairy’s father-in-law Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
It is not just about who moves up faster but it is also about settling old scores.
Helping Hishammuddin will, in some ways, check Mukhriz’s advance in the VP contest.

Meanwhile at NST today, there was an article which appeared to be rather harmless but if you read it in full will reveal a very interesting conclusion. Here are  excerpts from that article,

Veteran Datuk Rahmah Abdul Hamid, 81, has found "experience" an important factor to consider when choosing the right candidate.
"Anybody looking to be elected into office should have served the party, starting out at the lower ranks," she said, while voicing her disappointment at the entrance of Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir into the vice-presidency race.
"While I have nothing against him, I feel that Mukhriz has been pushed far too quickly up the ranks. He has not even served as division leader yet.
"Umno works religiously from ground to the top and if you have not spent time building the party or being a coolie, then you will not understand the sentiments of party members."
She said Mukhriz should instead spend his time focusing on Kedah and get accepted by the people there first.
She pointed out that, in contrast, incumbent vice-president (Datuk Seri) Hishammuddin Hussein had his foot on the ground and knew the party's ins and outs.

Now, who is actually this veteran Datuk Rahmah Abdul Hamid ?

I give you a clue - she got a son with  sexy eyes and I never remember him ever being an Umno coolie.


  1. Spot on and well-spotted, Annie! Cuba kita tanya pulak Ms 80-year old UMNO veteran, kalau anak sendiri pulak suddenly naik from nowhere, macamana hukumnya?

  2. Salam Annie,
    Ayoyo, mami anak sexy eyes pun nak kempen ke? Haiya, what she said about Mukriz sebijik kena batang hidung anak dia lah! Anak dia langkau tangga kepimpinan UMNO tu apa cerita?
    " religiously from ground to the top and if you have not spent time building the party or being a coolie, then you will not understand the sentiments of party members." - really? I tot its KJ's FIL/SIL factor... so he has spent enuf time jadi "coolie" ke? Nenek ni should spend time with the cucu la... grey matter dah tak cukup...

  3. Her son KJ worked as an Umno 'coolie' for how many years before being installed as Umno deputy Youth chief (uncontested)?

  4. I was there la: KJ hardly knew Pemuda UMNO yet was appointed by hisham as exco. Then contested dep youth chief & not surprisingly won uncontested. the rest is history. Point: when did KJ serve as coolie in UMNO? The whole world knows his rise was meteoric and hisham was among the ennablers/culprits!

  5. For4give that SENILE o'l woman the mother of the sexy eyes. Kadangkala orang
    tua nyanyuk pun tak tau apa dia cakap. Maklum lah bekas besan PM yang paling tak berfungsi di Malaysia,terbawak bawak lah tu, lupa daratan . Dah nyanyuk ke si nenek sorang ni.

  6. Maafkan Datuk Rahmah binti Abd.Hamid atas pendapatnya itu!. Bukankah kasih ibu membawa ke syurga. Tapi belum masa lagi untuk pergi ke syurga di alam yang fana ini.
    Jadilah kasih ibu berkempen secara halus dan bijaksana untuk kepentingan politik anaknya pada masa depan. Cantas semua tokoh yang boleh jadi saingan pada anaknya! Angkat topi untuk Datuk Rahmah!
