No matter how DAP-led Pakatan leader tries to surround himself with Malays; emperor Lim Kit Siang still has not clothes.
Sure he can surround himself with Malays to to create the illusion that they (the Malays) are calling the shots and running the show; but everyone knows that DAP-led Pakatan is the fiefdom which he is emperor.
The Malays which he has propped up around him are just the window dressing to lure in the unsuspecting pray.
There is Tun Mahathir who may believe that Lim Kit Siang has forgotten their contentious pass and is letting bygones be bygones. But the truth may be more that the two former antagonist are bidding their time to see who can screw the other the hardest.
At present Lim Kit Siang is perfectly willing to allow Tun Mahathir to be the face of the Pakatan coalition. For Kit Siang, the end justifies the means; create the illusion that the Pakatan coalition is Malay led while keeping the real power with the DAP.
There are those such as Mat Sabu and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who like Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail are willing to be used just as long at the end of the day (election) they get what they were promised, if they were to capture Putrajaya.
What price is to big as long as Emperor Lim Kit Siang can keep himself clothed (fronted) with Malays.
However not many Malays are buying into the facade that Malays are at the helm of DAP-led Pakatan. They are seeing through the charade that is being perpetuated as well as who and what is behind it.
What they see is that even with having Malays as cover, emperor Lim Kit Siang still has no clothes and they (Malays) are calling him as well as DAP-led Pakatan out on the farce!
