"The problem is Mahathir’s propaganda team is a bunch of dimwits." - Raja Petra Kamaruddin, MAD: Acronym for Mahathir Accedes Defeat, Malaysia Today 3/10/16
Bangsar, 4/10/16: A. Kadir Jasin, Jebat Must Die and Syed Akbar Ali will disagree with RPK but the fact that the Old Man had to take matters into his own hands and "whack" Najib's "little Goebbels" on his own blog means he could not wait for his own top cyber warriors (and Kadir, JMD and Syed are up there, at least in my book they are) to do the dirty work for him. If I were part of the Tun's propaganda team, I would not allow him go down on his knees like that. But, like he said, I am not with him.
In his posting h e r e, the Tun gives me too much credit, though. My friends who are still with him could have told him that, yes, I am clearly not with him but I could not have been out to "kill" him. Helen Ang put things in perspective in Rocky, Big Dog and the myth of neutrality (30/9): Rocky made a grand total of seven postings in his blog for the entire month of August. This is hardly reflective of a media man out to get Tun.
But, I suppose, as A Voice, former staunch Tun supporter, puts it in his latest posting Crossing the line (4/10), if you are not with the Old Man, you are against him!

What's really interesting in RPK's posting, though, is his assertion that there exists a "real" Goebbels on Najib's team. Dr Mahathir knows this man, RPK said, the Old Man just won't name him ...
This man is the head of the Boffin Boys, who Mahathir knows personally and knows he is Najib’s head of counter-propaganda. Yes, this man who Mahathir will not name has managed to outthink Mahathir and counter all Mahathir’s propaganda with an effective counter-propaganda.
Mmm ... Now who could it be?
