Politics is amusing.

I can’t help but be enter­tained by the stun­ning devel­op­ments in Malaysia’s polit­i­cal land­scape over the past week alone.

The recent events are becom­ing more and more like the fights I used to have (and still do) with my sis­ter. Only this time, its between two big-time VIPs and hence their every move scru­ti­nised, analysed, crit­i­cised and talked upon by 25 mil­lion Malaysians.

Just a month ago, the world wit­nessed the end of the long and gru­elling US Demo­c­ra­tic pri­maries in which Sen­a­tor Barack Obama emerged as the pre­sump­tive nom­i­nee for the Demo­c­ra­tic party, going head-to-head with Repub­li­can nom­i­nee John McCain.

The pres­i­den­tial pri­maries alone took five bloody months and that was only the first step in the long and wind­ing path to the white house not lim­ited to more con­ven­tions, speeches, debates, cam­paign­ing and a myr­iad of terms and processes an aver­age joe wouldn’t have heard of.

The race to the White House: US style.

Obama VS McCain

But if you ask me, the US pres­i­den­tial race sucks. Its down­right bor­ing.

All the cam­paign­ing, all the speeches, con­ven­tions, ral­lies, debates. Meh.

Let me intro­duce:

The race to Putra­jaya: Malaysian style.

Anwar vs Najib

The drama, the shock and awe, the polit­i­cal explo­sions, the alle­ga­tions, the miss­ing PI, the statu­tory dec­la­ra­tion with a 24-hour lifes­pan, the con­spir­acy, the ploys, the accu­sa­tions, the homo, the Mon­go­lian girl, the Turk­ish embassy, the UMNO gen­eral elec­tions, the Sep­tem­ber 16 dead­line, the unan­swered ques­tions, the sus­pense! Ooooh.

Malaysian pol­i­tics is so much more entertaining.
