As Parliament's automatic dissolution hurtles fast upon us (April 28), Pm Najib seems to disappear from the radar - election radar i.e
Otherwise, Najib is as busy as ever pushing his personal popularity stake, taking a very public lunch with his family at The Curve the other day.
Najib has allowed the Negri Sembilan state assembly to dissolve itself automatically and it looks very likely that he will also await Parliament's automatic dissolution.
That will be the first time ever that a Malaysian Pm has allowed it to happen. It just reflects on Najib's lack of mojo.
Now with the man whom many Malaysians see as the de facto Pm warning Najib that he would be replaced if Barisan fail to win big in the coming general election, Najib really looks a pathetic lonesome dove.
Perhaps the only thing left for pink lips is the Streets of Laredo.
Nevertheless, his motley bunch of half-hearted lieutenants are trying their last feeble best to cheer up the indecisive boss.
They claim that 40% of the 3.7 million new voters are actually fence-sitters and so there is hope.
All they need to do is lure these good for nothing fellows who prefer the fence to the sofa, to come off their silly perch and embrace the status quo.
My, firstly to claim that 40% of the new Malaysian voters are actually fence-sitters is an insult to their intelligence.
It implies that they are largely are not keeping up with current events or are stupid enough not to comprehend what maintaining the status quo means to their and the country's future.
The opposition has a more realistic estimate of the undecided new voters at 15-20%.
