Mahathir wants to kick out Najib, like he wanted Badawi out.
With Badawi, it was easy. Mahathtir left the UMNO he himself formed.
With Ah Jib, it is a little more problematic.
Leaving UMNO Baru again does not quite work the same kind of magic with Najib.
Mahathir himself laments so often that to Ah Jib, cash is king.
But not taking issue if you said cash can do crazy things.
Like it can buy you allegiance.
And help entrench yourself.
Cash is what makes the world go round anyway.
It can seal your mouth.
And make you blind to the bad.
And drool with madness and speak the untruth?
Or babble like an idiot.
Unseeing and unconcerned, except for more of the intoxicating juice.
That's what people will say about what money can do.
But we are not talking of money or cash.
We are talking about what more does Mahathir want?
If all Mahathir wants is to see Najib out as the Pm, that is not going to change Bolehland's fate.
Because whomever from dUMNo takes over as the Pm, it will be the same old same old.
They don't say dUMNo is an ossified dinosaur for nothing.
It is so set in its ways that change is no longer part of its DNA.
Bolehland needs to vote out the dinosaur and consign it into the dustbin of history for any meaningful change to take place.
The new guy or gal who becomes the Pm must be a no-nonsense person.
He or she must be able to reform the public institutions, the law enforcement agencies and the judiciary. And return independence to them.
And restore the rakyat's confidence in the nation's institutions.
He or she must be able to put the fear of the devil into the hearts of the corrupt and those who would abuse their positions for personal gain.
Or resort to playing the race and religion card.
He or she must himself or herself be squeaky clean. That will rule out quite a few who have been bandied about as potential Pm.
And race should not be the determinant of who can become the Pm.
