Are our politicians stupid?
That was the suggestion of a tourist who went nude on the summit of Mount Kinabalu.
We might not agree with tourists going nude on our mountains, but it is hard not to agree with the tourist who lamented why our politicians are so stupid.
To attribute the Sabah earthquake to the gods being offended by the summit nudity is the kind
of unthinking stupidity that Bolehland doesn't need but gets plenty of, gratis.
Such remarks just don't make sense. They even make fools of the gods - punishing the innocent for the 'sins' of other people.
Just like how some eager religious figures who would often rush to attribute natural disasters to god's wrath.
But our politicians' stupidity, it seems, often extends beyond the favourite ploy of dragging god into the picture to spouting barefaced lies.
Giving simply egregious answers to issues affecting the nations to cover their behinds and expecting the rakyat to take them seriously.
And be treated like they are gods themselves.
To be genuflected to and applauded.
Oh my, if only the gods are bothered!
