Suckers that we were. Many of us peace-loving Malaysians were fooled by the promises made 4 years ago, by the smiling face on the postcard, by the "personal" letters sent to our homes, by the Mr Clean image, by the "stark contrast" between the heart-warming Abdullah Badawi and his stone-cold predecessor.
Jacqueline Ann Surin's flashback Keeping the Promise would surely remind many of us of that false euphoria and a deja vu that leaves a bitter after taste. Knowing now that we deserve to kick our own asses for being so gullible.
The good thing is Jacquie and some friends have started their own website www.malaysiavotes.com to write what the Sun may no longer be able to publish.
p.s. We bumped into Citizan Nades, the face of the Sun, last night. Chatted about journalism, about politics, about disappointments. We await his next move.
