This is late, but what the devil!
They say that a desperate man will say desperate things.
In an obvious sign of desperation, Mahathir has finally admitted in a rambling post in his blog that the ruling Barisan (and by implication, Umno, who is the taiko of the coalition) is the known devil and that he himself was the devil-in-chief (by implication, as he headed both when he was the Pm)
And unfortunately for him, he also said that the opposition is the angel, although an unknown one.
They say a frightened man is also likely to be blur-blur one as Singaporeans are fond of saying.
If he was a little less blur-blur (or frightened?) one, he would (and should) have said "the deep blue sea" instead of the angel you don't know.
Nevertheless, Mahathir has urged Malaysians to vote the devil they know rather than the angel they don't.
This, of course, sounds like blasphemy to many.
In every religion, the devil is someone you are admonished to shun at all costs. If you choose to cavort with the devil, you must be prepared to roast in hell.
The angel, on the other hand, is a servant of God and sometime messenger.
Even the Good Book has warned us to treat strangers kindly for you may never know that you are entertaining angels unawares.
So, would you choose the devil?
