Malaysian politicians talk crap all the time. I wonder if it is because they think that all Malaysian's are exactly like them - inbred and mentally challenged, and thus they can feed us with their bull 'white matter' or they genuinely cannot understand the words spouting from their ugly mugs.

anttyk, problem with our politicians is that every issue is politicized to the extent that our intelligence is insulted. Sometimes an admission of weakness and a resolution to rectify it will gain better political mileage.

yati, check out the Star. I choked on my cereal when reading it.

So, the moral of the story is: The white matter rocks.

Or should it be: Cereal can be a choking hazard?
