I understand that politics is more about emotion that facts.
That’s why I understand the role of the spin doctors, those that work to create the image of a politician to ensure crowd-engagement.
Like why Michelle Obama is the icon of X, symbol of Y and things like that, to give a simple example. Like why presidential election will put the spotlight directed to the whole family, not only the candidate.
I get that.
But I think the PR people who work for the current PM of Malaysia have gone overboard.
You’ll see that many mainstream newspaper have two pages dedicated for daily life of the PM (which I don’t mind much) but also for his wife. Or shall I said the heavily-botoxed face of his wife. This is really too much I can even vomit straightaway.
Tell me one day where there is no news whatsoever, especially on TV3 , on his wife.
I bet there is none.
Even his sons got to be in the news, was it when he’s going to China ? It was referred to as the legacy of the late Tun Razak (as he was the one who built the relationship with China) – now lived through three generations.
And even the PM being infected with chicken pox made it to the main page.
Like this sickening piece of news:http://thestar.com.my/news/story.aspfile=/2010/11/10/nation/7397410&sec=nation
I think we have enough updates from his Twitter and website, we don’t need to be overfed with this kind of stories.
That was not the case back then when we were under the reign of Tun Mahathir. He was not perfect, surely he’s not. People still hate him, I know they are. But at least he and his family do not create the hatred this way.
We should make a national poll so that the wife knows how she rates among us.
