The long awaited denouement to the farcical Selangor MB saga came the way as most had expected, but not what concerned and thinking Malaysians had hoped for.
With all due respect, it appeared like the law and the constitution might have been skirted, although PKR had finally to accept in capitulation.
What should have been a simple process to appoint an MB had turned out to be more like a struggle to understand rocket science.
Why that should have been so is what has made a lot of people wonder and has probably made permanent skeptics and cynics, if not fools, of us all.
At the end of the day, Pakatan as a viable alternative has become a pipe dream. A large part of the blame for the fiasco must fall squarely on Pas.
Instead of standing squarely by their coalition partners, the Islamic party acted almost like a rabid dog, barking at their partners with their presidentilal blast from hell even blaming brokers and pimps and everything and everybody else, except their own perfidy.
The real losers are the voters who can't expect their votes to carry their voice.
Pakatan as a tripartite coalition can close shop. The road to Putrajaya has closed for them, because voters can no longer rely on their leaders to stand by their convictions, much less the voters' hope.
The monarch of the day is political expedience.
And parliamentary democracy the sacrificial lamb?
